The project is located at West Fork Dairy Creek on OR 47 west of Banks. The existing bridge is currently more than 80 years old and its timber deck is in poor condition. We are replacing the deteriorated timber bridge with a new single span bridge. We are also realigning the creek to prevent downstream bank erosion by adding vegetation and boulders along the sides of the creek. ​

​The work will include:

  • Replace the bridge and repave the roadway.

  • Replace guardrail.

  • Install new striping and traffic signs.

  • Stream improvements and erosion protection.​
