ODOT TRAFFIC ALERT: Bandon-Coquille Highway now open (Photo) - 04/15/19

BANDON – Oregon 42 South is now open to a single lane of traffic.

The highway from Coquille had been closed five miles east of Bandon since Wednesday night, April 10, when a blocked culvert washed out 50 feet of pavement.

Over the weekend, ODOT and Hayes Construction installed a 4-foot diameter culvert 25 feet below the road surface and placed 1,800 tons of rock in the hole. The new culvert is less likely to become blocked by storm debris than the previous 2-foot pipe. It will also allow better fish passage.

Flaggers will provide traffic control until the 50-foot section of road is paved later this week. Motorists should expect brief delays through the work zone.

The repair project is expected to cost $118,000.

For more information, contact Dan Latham, ODOT Public Affairs, at 541-957-3601 or Dan.Latham@odot.state.or.us.

ODOT TRAFFIC ALERT: Bandon-Coquille Highway closed the rest of the week (Photo) - 04/11/19

BANDON – Oregon 42 South remains closed five miles east of Bandon after a 50-foot section of the roadway collapsed Wednesday night, April 10. The closure will likely continue into next week.

Motorists traveling between Bandon and Coquille are advised to use U.S. 101 and Oregon 42.

The washout occurred at milepost 5.4 near a culvert that was blocked, resulting in water pooling on the uphill side of the road. Heavy rains have washed a large amount of debris through creeks and culverts in recent weeks.

For more information, contact Dan Latham, ODOT Public Affairs, at 541-957-3601 or Dan.Latham@odot.state.or.us.
