OR 42: Lower Lookingglass Creek Bridge Repair

Project Completed

Region 3: Southwestern Oregon (Winston, Douglas)

​The Lower Lookingglass Creek Bridge, located along Oregon 42 at the west entrance to Winston, was built in 1949. This project strengthened the deck, replaced the rails, and made several other repairs.​​​​​​​​


Traffic Impact

This project required intermittent lane closures with flaggers and delays. The bridge was closed to all motor traffic for three weeks, from June 13 to July 3, 2019. Pedestrian access across the bridge was maintained.


The project bid on February 7, 2019. Construction began the week of May 6. All work was completed by August 30, 2019.



Oregon 42 (Coos Bay to Roseburg Highway) is one of the primary routes connecting Interstate 5 to the southern Oregon coast. The Lower Lookingglass Creek Bridge is located at milepost 72.5, near Douglas High School and the west entrance to Winston. More than 4,600 vehicles cross the bridge each day.

Built in 1949, the bridge was in need of several repairs. This project repaired damaged concrete, strengthened and resurfaced the bridge deck, replaced the bridge rails and connected them to guardrail and concrete barrier at each end of the bridge, adjusted the drains, made minor repairs to the timber sidewalk, and paved the roadway approaches.
