The Oregon Department of Transportation is NOT closing the Astoria-Megler because of the predicted wind storm on the Oregon Coast this afternoon. ODOT does not close the bridge due to weather. The only time ODOT will close the bridge is for an accident or obstruction that needs to be cleared.

As is always the case, motorists should drive carefully in all weather conditions and adjust their driving behavior based on the condition of the roadway.
