Pacific Coast Route Section #2 - Summer 2014
« on: June 06, 2014, 04:07:51 pm »
A construction project in Newport may cause traffic delays on NW Oceanview Drive, which is on the designated Oregon Coast Bike Route.

Updated info for 7/28/14:

Work on NW Oceanview Drive has passed south of NW Edenview Way, so touring bicyclists may now use NW Edenview Way as a south-bound detour.

Work from NW Edenview Way south is expected to be complete by mid-August. Until then, all traffic (including touring bicyclists) can expect delays of up to 20 minutes during the contractor’s work hours, which are 7am to 5pm on Monday to Friday.

Optional detour for Oregon Coast Bike Route (Google Maps):

The most recent update on the status of this work may be found at:

Southbound bicyclists seeking to avoid the construction zone may choose to continue south on US-101 for 1.2 miles, then turn right onto NW 15th St for 0.2 miles, and then rejoin the Oregon Coast Bike Route by turning left onto NW Oceanview Drive.  As an alternative to US-101, they may also turn left onto NE 36th St or NE 31st St and travel south into Newport by way of NE Big Creek Road (refer to a map for this option).
