Enlarged project mapThe Salt Creek Bridge was constructed in 1951 to last 50 years. Through regular maintenance and repairs, we have been able to extend its usefulness, but the wooden structure has deteriorated and rotted to the point where​ the bridge requires replacement to operate in a safe manner. 

In addition, we also improved the intersection at SW Lancefield Road to make it easier to see traffic on OR 153.​
