ODOT release – Motorists traveling U.S. 101 between Coos Bay and Bandon this week should expect intermittent daytime lane closures and 20 minute delays due to hazard tree removal work. The work will take place along U.S. 101 near East Beaver Hill Road at milepost 253, about 15 miles south of Coos Bay, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, Dec. 17-21. This area frequently experiences high winds, causing large trees to fall in winter storms. Removing trees close to the roadway will improve safety for the traveling public.
