Beginning approximately 12 miles west of Carlton in Yamhill County, the Nestucca River National Back Country Byway traverses the Oregon Coast Range, following one of Oregon’s most scenic rivers to Beaver in Tillamook County, and offers a leisurely route through typical coastal forest. All but three miles of the Nestucca River National Back Country Byway is a two-lane paved road. The remaining gravel portion is the subject of this improvement project.
Portions of the road will be widened and updated to current safety standards. New drainage will be installed and existing facilities upgraded. Finally, the road will be paved with asphalt.
