OR 202: Nehalem River (Banzer) Bridge Replacement (milepost 44)
Project Information
The Oregon Department of Transportation completed construction in August 2012 on a project to replace the existing Banzer Bridge over the Nehalem River, located on OR 202 (Nehalem Highway) near Banzer Rd., between Mist and Birkenfeld.  The bridge was replaced because of significant cracking on the deck surface, substandard rail and narrow roadway width.   Project elements included:
*  Constructing a new bridge with wider lanes and shoulders
*  Shifting the road alignment to the north to meet the new bridge
*  Constructing water quality facilities
Construction began June 2010 and finished in August 2012.
