ODOT opens most major routes and continues work on state highways
by Bend Weekly News Sources

While most of the major coastal highways are open, there are delays and areas in which motorist need to drive with extra care. 
Slides and high water have closed or are partially blocking several highways:

  • Interstate 5 is closed in Washington State from mileposts 68 to 88 (the Chehalis and Centralia areas) due to floodwaters from the Chehalis River; WSDOT and ODOT advise that motorists will not be able to travel I-5 between Portland and Seattle for at least the next few days

  • Oregon 34 is open

    • Expect delays near mile post 16, east of Waldport, one way traffic is being controlled by flaggers because of a slide undermining the roadway

    • At mile post 19, the roadway has been undermined at the shoulder.  Both lanes are open, but please drive with caution

  • Oregon 38 (Umpqua Highway) is closed from Reedsport to Elkton due to a landslide.  Crews estimate Saturday reopening

  • Oregon 47 is closed just south of U.S. 30, north of Vernonia.  Slides in multiple locations will require geotechnical assessment and significant repairs

  • Oregon 99W is open, but expect delays just south of Oregon 10 (mile post 3.2), where the rightmost southbound lane is closed due to a slide

  • Oregon 103 (Fishhawk Falls Hwy.) is now open

  • Oregon 202 is open but reduced to one lane at mile post 24.5.  Please drive with caution

  • Oregon 229 is open with intermittent lane closures due to downed trees. Expect delays and drive with caution.

This will be the final statewide update.  Further updates will be done regionally as conditions change.
