AboutOregon 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.
