North Jetty Closure

North Jetty Closure

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will extend construction on the Mouth of the Columbia River’s North Jetty to Jan. 1, 2020.

The Corps originally planned to re-open the area and road at the North Jetty on Nov. 1, 2019, but jetty construction and equipment removal from the site has taken longer than the Corps previously anticipated.

The jetty, North Jetty Road and nearby parking lots will remain closed to the public during this extended closure. Benson and Waikiki beaches are not affected by these repairs and will remain open.

The Corps constructed the MCR jetty system between 1885 and 1939. The system consists of three rubble-mound jetties: North Jetty, South Jetty and Jetty A. The jetties, which total 9.7 miles in length, minimize navigation channel maintenance and make passage safer for vessels transiting between the Pacific Ocean and the Columbia River.
