OR 281 Culvert Repair at Indian Creek
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is working on a project to repair the old culvert under OR 281 (12th Street in the City of Hood River), which has become damaged over time. This culvert carries Indian Creek below the highway. ​
Indian Creek runs through a culvert below OR 281 (12th Street) in Hood River.
Indian Creek runs through a culvert below OR 281 (12th Street) in Hood River. 

Why is it needed?

The culvert is damaged, resulting in an unstable condition for the roadway above Indian Creek. This project  will preserve the culvert at a much lower cost and with less impact to travelers than if it were allowed to deteriorate further.  ​

​When will it happen? 

Construction is planned between June and Sept. 2017, with work taking place during the day. 

What are the details? 

The project will include the following:
  • Repair  the culvert from the trail, with traffic impacts to 12th Street, including sidewalk and lane closures. 
  • Daytime construction with equipment parked along 12th Street. 
  • Trail access will be modified, with trail users detoured around the construction work (signs will be posted​).
