I-5 Salem Bridge End Panel Raising Project

Project Completed

​This project will raise the end panels on four bridges on I-5 in Salem. It will repair deficiencies in the bridge end panels and approach pavement to smooth out the ride. ​​​

Impacts

Traffic Impact

​The construction work zone will consist of nightly lane closures, Sunday night through Friday morning from as early as 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Expect delays of up to 30 minutes, especially during periods of high traffic volume.

Cost and Funding

$4.25 million

Additional Information

​The four bridges were reconstructed on I-5 almost 20 years ago when  I-5 was widened through Salem but the end panels are displaying vertical dips off both ends of the bridges, in both directions, resulting in poor ride conditions for motorists.  The project will grind the pavement; inlay new pavement material to better match the roadway and bridge profiles; and improve drainage near the bridge ends.
Over 100,000 vehicles a day use this section of I-5.
The four bridges are:
  • Silverton Road (MP 257.53) overcrossing
  • Sunnyview Road (MP256.54) overcrossing. The ramps to and from Market Street are also on the bridge
  • Market Street (MP256.28) overcrossing
  • State Street (MP 254.74) overcrossing
