Flaggers will control single lane of traffic during construction when work is occurring as required. Minor delays should be expected when single lane closures are occurring and the public is reminded to drive through the area with caution. One or more lanes may be closed when allowed shown or directed during the following periods and times: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., except those times as indicated in 00220.40(e-2).

The project will lengthen the U.S. 101 couplet to the Hoquarton Slough by extending Pacific Avenue north beyond 1st Street and replacing the existing slough bridge with a new four-lane bridge. The new bridge will be up to 5 feet higher than the existing bridge. The project will also widen the travel lanes on Main and Pacific Avenues from 1st to 4th Streets. Turn lanes will be added at key intersections through town. The project also improves the Hoquarton Interpretive Area, and adds gateway elements and downtown beautification.

Salem, Ore. — Recent rule changes adopted by the Oregon Board of Forestry adjust camping fees in state forests, provide additional benefits to qualifying military veterans and active duty service members, revise overnight stay limits on state forests, and initiate a pilot campsite reservation program at a Clatsop State Forest campground.

Fees: Campsite fees have increased to include two vehicles in the base fee. Drive-in campsites will now cost $20 per night, while walk-in tent sites will be $15 per night. This reflects the reality that many campers are already bringing two vehicles. Fees for group campsites and extra vehicle fees remain the same, as do fees for designated camping areas.

Beginning May 25, ODF will begin charging camping fees at the following designated camping areas in the Tillamook State Forest: Morrison Eddy ($15 per night for up to two vehicles) along with Cedar Creek and North Fork Wilson Designated Campsites ($5 per vehicle per night).

Honoring veterans: Military veterans with a service-connected disability who hold the Veteran’s Special Access Pass issued by Oregon State Parks can now stay in Oregon Department of Forestry campgrounds for free. Additionally, the agency will waive fees for active duty service members on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.

Stay and occupancy limits: The rule changes also address how long campers may stay. Stays on state forestland may be no longer than 14 consecutive days, or more than 42 days over a 12-month period. This change is due to the increasing trend of people who stay for long periods of time and use state forests as their primary residence. While the public is welcomed and encouraged to enjoy Oregon’s state forests, long-term camping restricts availability of camping sites for recreational uses, and creates safety and sanitation challenges.

Establishing pilot program for Northrup Creek Horse Camp reservations: Under this pilot program, campers will reserve sites at this campground in the Clatsop State Forest through Reserve America, the same reservation system used by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. All campsites at Northrup Creek Horse Camp will be reservation only; on-site registration at the campground will no longer be offered. The new reservation system provides certainty to horse campers that they have a reserved campsite prior to trailering a horse to the campgrounds.

PACIFIC CITY—Motorists are being urged to slow down and be ready to move over for hundreds of bicyclists that will be using area roads during the annual Reach the Beach event on Saturday, May 19. OR 18, OR 22 and OR 130 should be particularly crowded with bicyclists and motorists are urged to avoid those roads during that day.

Participants will be taking off from Beaverton, Newberg, Amity and Grand Ronde with the finish line in Pacific City. While OR 18 will be one of the main roads used for the event, bicyclists will also be using the scenic, narrow and winding OR 22 (Three Rivers Highway) and OR 130 (Little Nestucca Highway). To reduce car traffic on these roads, motorists are being urged to stay off the roads that bicyclists are using as it may be difficult to find a safe place to pass on these narrow rural highways. Consider using OR 18 and U.S. 101 north instead to get to the finish line in Pacific City.
