OR 58: Coast Fork Willamette River to Lower Salt Creek Bridges

Construction Phase

Region 2: Willamette Valley and Northwest Oregon (Oakridge, Pleasant Hill, Lane)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This seismic resiliency project will retrofit four bridges to meet current design standards. 

Banner: Slow down, in the work zone it could save lives. Building a modern transportation system to help Oregon’s communities and economy thrive. During construction, Give yourself more time, try a new way or mode to get there or take a different route.


Traffic Impact

Expect single lane nighttime closures with flaggers directing traffic on the Lower Salt Creek Bridge.

Construction Impacts

On Lower Salt Creek Bridge between 9/5 and 10/15, work will be Sunday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
You can expect:

  • Single lane nighttime closures with flaggers directing traffic.
  • Delays.
  • Construction noise.
​For the work on Salmon Creek Bridge, you can expect the hiking trail under the bridge from Greenwater Park to be closed. Plan ahead - we are closing five parking spaces during construction.​

Construction Activities

Use caution - these are active work zones as we retrofit these bridges along the corridor. 

  1. ​Coast Fork Willamette River Bridge: none at this time. We anticipate work starting in 2024.

  2. Willamette River (Barnard) Bridge: none at this time. We anticipate work starting in 2024​.​

  3. Salmon Creek Bridge: we're removing shrubs and trees to prepare for construction. You may see crews working along the shoulders.

  4. Lower Salt Creek Bridge: removing and replacing the asphalt pavement, applying a waterproof material and replacing the bridge seals.
