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: Watch for construction vehicles and machinery entering and exiting the highway.
Construction is planned during 2015 with the final paving of the tunnel approaches scheduled for 2016.
Concrete barrier has been placed along centerline and traffic is restricted to a single travel lane, controlled by 24 hr. flagging and a pilot car for the remainder of the project.
Check the project website www.58tunnel.org and www.Tripcheck.com for project information and closure information.

Remarks:   Lane closures for work will start the 20th of April, with longer lane closures for paving starting in early May. Work will take place Sunday night through Thursday night, including day time work, with lane closures that will be less than 20 minutes and usually of much shorter duration due to relatively short lane closure lengths. Lane closures for the production paving will predominately take place from 7PM to 7AM Sunday through Thursday, when delays may be up to 20 minutes.

Interstate 5 (Pacific Highway), MP 162-170, Martin Creek-Anlauf Paving ($18.5 million)
Project Summary: This project will repair or replace much of the concrete road surface between south Cottage Grove (Exit 170) and the Oregon 38 junction. Construction is expected to continue until spring of 2015.
Remarks: Construction is in its final phase. I-5 is limited to one lane in each direction through most of the project area (milepost 162-170) until mid-May. All interchange ramps will remain open. Congestion and delays are likely during peak travel times. Motorists are advised to adjust their travel times to avoid peak hours and to consider alternate routes. Watch for workers on the side of the road and for construction vehicles entering and exiting the travel lanes.
Motorists should watch for roadside message boards or visit www.tripcheck.com for the latest road and travel information.
