U.S. 30: Eilertsen Creek Culvert Replacement Project
Project Information
In fall 2012, an ODOT project was completed on U.S. 30 at milepost 67.8, approximately 5 miles west of Clatskanie. This $2 million project replaced the two Eilertsen Creek culverts with bridges -- one under the highway and one under the railroad tracks. This was the site of a major debris flow in 2007 that closed the highway for several days. By replacing these culverts with bridges, the water from Eilertsen Creek should be able to flow freely and the chance of a debris flow of that magnitude should be reduced. The stream bed adjacent to the highway was also rebuilt.
