OR 42: Lower Lookingglass Creek Bridge Repair

Construction Phase

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 will strengthen the deck, replace the rails, and make several other repairs.​​​​​​​


Traffic Impact

Motorists can expect intermittent lane closures with flaggers and delays until construction is completed. Pedestrian access across the bridge will be maintained.


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



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 is in need of several repairs. This project will repair damaged concrete, strengthen and resurface the bridge deck, replace the bridge rails and connect them to guardrail and concrete barrier at each end of the bridge, adjust the drains, make minor repairs to the timber sidewalk, and pave the roadway approaches.
