Project Description:

US 101 Business serves as a primary route to Fort Clatsop from Astoria intersecting with OR 202, the primary route to Youngs River Falls. The current intersection is offset and confusing to the unfamiliar driver, resulting in unsafe conditions and a high accident rate. The intersection between US 101 Business and OR 202 and the Old Youngs Bay Bridge would be reconfigured to improve safety and capacity in time to accommodate the increase in traffic brought by the bicentennial.
