10 day closure for bridge construction planned July 8
The second phase of construction is planned for after the July 4 Holiday. That’s the full 10 day closure of the southbound exit 40 ramps and connector road to Old Stage Road. The closure is needed to construct the bridge, using pre-made components, remove the old culvert and repave the project area.
The access road between Interstate 5 Exit 40 (Gold Hill) and Old Stage Road.
Currently, there is excavation work off the roadway in preparation for the July 8 full closure.
What is ODOT going to do?
The culvert running under Old Stage Road is deteriorating, which will eventually affect the roadway. It will be replaced with a bridge, using an expedited bridge construction method.
The contractor has completed the first closure over four days in April. Now, it’s preparing the site for the full closure after the busy July 4 Holiday. During this phase both I-5 southbound ramps will be closed to hasten bridge construction.
