Traffic Impact

Most of the work that impacts the travel lanes will be done at night. There may be times when one-lane closures occur to accommodate equipment needed for the work and activities being done underneath the bridge.

Construction estimated to be completed in late 2021.



​The bridge was built in 1963 and with heavy traffic usage, deterioration and direct exposure to the elements, and rapid changes in temperature, the bridge is in need of repair.

With more than 20,000 vehicles a day on average using it, the bridge connects Astoria with the other communities on U.S. 101 and is an important life line in Clatsop County.  Making the necessary repairs enables the bridge to continue as a critical part of the North Coast transportation network.

The project work includes raising the lift span tower bracing above the high route clearance requirement, replacing rocker bearings, repairing the damaged concrete with galvanic cathodic protection, and replacing compression joint seals.
