Oregon may aid airport project

Thanks to the City of Brookings, a mandatory runway improvement project for Del Norte County Regional Airport is poised to receive $400,000 from the State of Oregon.

When a major crisis strikes a small community like Crescent City, emergency managers and first responders will have to deal with not only victim triage, putting out fires and coordinating rescue efforts, but also fielding questions from pesky reporters.

Not just hometown pesky reporters, but also the likes of CNN, Fox News, ABC, CBS and many other national news outlets that might descend on Crescent City to get the scoop on the devastation.

Free disaster trainings offered to community

Federal and state disaster response agencies will be holding two free trainings this week, one on distributing emergency supplies and the other on debris management, skills that will be vital for community members to know in order for Del Norte County to have a quick and efficient recovery after a disaster.

Money. It’s what Crescent City wants — and might actually have this year — even if it’s only just enough.

Board objects to forest road plan

For nearly nine years, Six Rivers National Forest has been working to take stock of all roads on the Smith River National Recreation Area/Gasquet Ranger District, decide the fate of each of those routes, and then implement those decisions, meaning ripping out some old roads and adopting others into the transportation system.

Overnight closure of Highway 101

There will be a full overnight closure of U.S. Highway 101 from 10 p.m. Sunday to 4 a.m. Monday at Klamath River Bridge as part of a $7 million bridge hinge replacement project.

No highway closure at Klamath bridge tonight

A second full closure for the U.S. Highway 101 Klamath River Bridge tentatively scheduled for Monday night has been canceled. Sunday night’s full closure allowed all equipment and materials to be successfully moved.

The closure was part of a $7 million bridge hinge replacement project, now in its second season of construction on the bridge, also known as the G.H. Douglas Memorial Bridge. Caltrans is replacing the third of three hinges, extending the service life of the structure.

A hinge is a vital part of a bridge that allows it to expand and contract with constant changes in temperature.

One-way traffic control with a temporary signal remains in effect 24 hours per day, seven days per week, causing motorists anticipated 5-minute delays.  

Separate full closures will be required in October to move equipment.
