OR 241 was established as part of Oregon's project to assign route numbers to highways that previously were not assigned.

Route descriptionEdit

OR 241 begins at the intersection of US 101 and Newport Avenue in an area known as Bunker Hill just south of Coos Bay. It travels east along Newport Avenue into Coos Bay and turns north onto 6th Avenue and east on D Street to leave Coos Bay. (The route is locally maintained within Coos Bay city limits.) OR 241 turns northeast again as it leaves Coos Bay, and travels through Allegany to just east of Nesika County Park, where it ends.[2] A county road continues to Golden and Silver Falls State Park.

HistoryEdit

OR 241 was assigned to the Coos River Highway on January 15, 2003. As of July 2008, OR 241 was not signed with route markers.[2]

Major intersectionsEdit

Milepoints are as reported by ODOT and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. Z indicates overlapping mileage due to construction longer than established route, and – indicates negative mileage behind established beginning point.[3] Segments that are locally maintained may be omitted. For routes traversing multiple named state highways, each milepoint is preceded by the corresponding state highway number. The entire route is in Coos County.
