OR 58: Salt Creek Half Viaducts Phase 2
OR 58 (Willamette Hwy) Milepost 56
Project Summary: This project will complete an earlier project, originally designed to lower the tunnel floor, repair the tunnel liner, and rebuild four half viaducts. The original project was partially completed in 2012 and 2013.
This project will complete construction of two half viaducts and other remaining items from the original project, along with newly added items.
Remarks: Construction is planned during 2015 with the final paving of the tunnel approaches scheduled for 2016.
During construction, Phase 2 will result in a limited number of complete nighttime highway closures. A single lane of travel, controlled by flaggers and pilot cars, will be in effect at all other times, 24 hours per day. There will be no 24 hour, complete highway closures.
