Official Says Highway 101 in Oregon Needs Work

The start of the 2009 session of the Oregon Legislature is months away, but transportation interests already appear to be jockeying for position when it comes to getting their pet projects out in front of legislators and the public.

For Onno Husing, executive director of the Oregon Coastal Zone Management Association in Newport, one of those projects that legislators should tackle during their next session is coming up with money to help fix aging and neglected roads along the coast.

Of particular concern to Husing's group, according to the Associated Press, is the condition of U.S. Highway 101, which serves as a main freight and access route along the entire length of Oregon's coast.
