SEASIDE, Oregon - Travelers heading to the North Coast today are reminded that there will be heavy congestion on U.S. 101 before and after a public memorial for fallen Seaside Police Sgt. Jason Goodding.
Prior to the 1 p.m. service at the Seaside Convention Center, a law enforcement procession will travel from Camp Rilea south on U.S. 101 to Seaside. The procession will be leaving Camp Rilea at around 10:45 a.m., effectively closing the southbound lane for over two hours.
While the northbound lane will remain open, northbound lanes could also see delays. All travelers should use extreme caution during the procession.
Delays on U.S. 101 should also be expected today after the service as mourners leave Seaside.
If you are expected to drive in this area between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., you are encouraged to take an alternative route or delay traveling until the events have ended.
Sgt. Goodding was shot and killed in downtown Seaside Feb. 5.
