Crews assessing repairs for U.S. 101 north of Brookings

Brookings, Ore. — U.S. 101 remained closed Tuesday morning due to a two-foot sunken grade. The closure is at milepost 344, which is 12 miles north of Brookings.

ODOT and contractors are meeting Tuesday to come up with a plan to repair the slide area.

“Hopefully, we can get a single lane open under gravel later today,” said ODOT District Manager Darrin Neavoll, “but given the nature of the sunken grade that may be wishful thinking.”

Carpenterville Highway is open to traffic, but ODOT warns it is a narrow, winding road. They add the highway should not be considered for use as a viable detour for any trucks.
