So Far, Oregon Coast Eclipse Traffic Hasn't Happened - Yet

(Newport, Oregon) – The latest updates from Lincoln County officials on the central Oregon coast indicate the big eclipse rush has not happened yet. Things are suspiciously quiet in the beach towns where the path of totality will wander through on Monday morning. As of 2 p.m., anyway.

According to Casey Miller, spokesman for the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners:

“Traffic in and around Lincoln County continues to be light. At this time ODOT indicates there are no delays for traveling to and around Lincoln County.”

Expectations are for traffic increase Sunday and Monday, he said.

Current information on traffic conditions around the state should visit the Oregon Department of Transportation’s: Tripcheck - http://TripCheck.com. Oregon Coast Beach Connection also has a traffic conditions update section for the coast which funnels a variety of up-to-the-minute ODOT information onto one page.

TripCheck Mobile is a separate web site formatted specifically for low-bandwidth users. You may access the site at http://m.tripcheck.com or http://www.tripcheck.com/mobile and, by dialing 511
