UPDATED PRESS RELEASE TO MANZANITA'S ROAD CLOSURES
US101: Manzanita Ave. – Neahkahnie Creek
(Oregon Coast Highway, mile post 43.00 to 43.34)
The work consists of replacement of an existing culvert at Neahkahnie Creek with a tunnel structure and enhancement of the stream bed as well as relocating and improving the highway alignment along U.S. 101 near Manzanita. Also, turning lane movements into downtown Manzanita will be enhanced.
The scheduled work includes construction of new roadway alignment. Flaggers may need to occasionally control single lane traffic during construction when work is occurring. Minor delays should be expected when single lane closures are occurring and the public is reminded to drive through the area with caution.
Manzanita Avenue will be closed on Monday, July 17 and Tuesday, July 18 to allow the roadway to be paved. Laneda Avenue is scheduled to be closed at its intersection with US101 starting on Monday, July 24 and ending on Friday, July 28 as the intersection roadway is rebuilt. A detour route will be designated with signing during the road closure. Oregon State Police will be enforcing the speed limit through the work zone area. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2017.

CARMEL RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT SET TO MOVE FORWARD
The City has partially settled with the previous contractor's bonding company Old Republic. Old Republic has agreed to cover the additional cost of construction due to changing contractors and the faulty work done by MAG, LLC. This has allowed us to select a new contractor to finish the project. There are additional costs associated with the default, but the City will file a claim for those after the completion of the project.
Advanced Excavation will start working on Carmel Monday, June 12, 2017. If the weather permits it, Advanced will pave Carmel before the 4th of July. After the 4th of July, the remainder of the project will be completed before the end of summer.
We understand that the problems with the Carmel project has been an inconvenience to our residents and visitors, so we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to complete the Carmel Avenue Reconstruction Project as quickly as possible.
The City will issue updates on this situation as more details become known.
