(Jan. 4, 2023 -LITTLE NESTUCCA HIGHWAY) – OR 130 will remain closed until at least late January during repairs to the bridge three miles west of OR 22.
We need to replace a steel beam in the upper support structure that was struck by a vehicle during the Dec. 27 storm. We hope to complete repairs by the end of January, but we cannot set an exact date because winter weather may cause delays.
OR 130, also known as the Little Nestucca River Highway, links the community of Dolph on OR 22 with U.S. 101 near Pacific City. OR 22 is the best alternate route for passenger vehicles traveling in the area, but it is weight-restricted for commercial vehicles.
The highway is open for local traffic, but local drivers must use the section of OR 130 on their side of the bridge. We apologize for the longer detour the closure will cause local residents.

Remember to slow down in wintry weather, leave plenty of space between you and other vehicles, and watch for vegetation and debris from recent storms. It takes longer to stop in wet and/or freezing conditions. Also bring traction devices if you cross snow zones and know how to use them.
