COOS BAY, Ore. -- As of 5 p.m. Friday, Empire Blvd. has reopened to two-way traffic for north and southbound travel, city officials said.

Two-way traffic will be maintained throughout the rest of the South Empire Blvd. Enhancement Project, although there will be locations along Empire Blvd. where flaggers and contractors will be working and motorists can expect short delays within those areas.

Fulton Avenue between S. Empire Blvd. and Marple Ave. will be closed until the Empire Blvd. project is completed (July 31, 2017).

Officials ask motorists to follow the detour route in the image.

Business access will be maintained throughout the duration of the project as well as access to homes along the project route.
