The Nehalem River Bridge is a historic bridge on OR 47 and needs to be repaired. Built in 1939, the repairs on the bridge are needed or it will continue to deteriorate and require costly maintenance. 

As part of the project are:

  • Removing the rust that has built up between the steel plates. 

  • Straightening bent steel beams.

  • Replacing rusted rivets and bolts.

  • Repainting the bridge to protect the bridge against the elements and future rust.

During construction expect noise and lane closures, causing short delays. ​
