This seismic resiliency project will retrofit four bridges to meet current design standards.
Expect single lane nighttime closures with flaggers directing traffic on the Lower Salt Creek Bridge.
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:
Coast Fork Willamette River Bridge: none at this time. We anticipate work starting in 2024.
Willamette River (Barnard) Bridge: none at this time. We anticipate work starting in 2024.
Salmon Creek Bridge: we're removing shrubs and trees to prepare for construction. You may see crews working along the shoulders.
Lower Salt Creek Bridge: removing and replacing the asphalt pavement, applying a waterproof material and replacing the bridge seals.

Pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will have access through or around work zones.
Pay attention in the work zone, slow down and move over – imagine this is where you work!
Always drive safely, watch for construction signs and workers.
Remember: fines double in all Oregon work zones, whether workers and signs are present or not.
By retrofitting these structures, the OR 58 corridor between I-5 and U.S. 97 will be strengthened as a lifeline route for delivery of supplies between the southern Willamette Valley and Central Oregon after an earthquake.
The bridges in this project are:
Retrofit Coast Fork Willamette River Bridge at milepost 2.4 (west of Pleasant Hill).
Retrofit Willamette River (Barnard) Bridge at milepost 33.2 (west of Oakridge).
Retrofit Salmon Creek Bridge at milepost 36 (in Oakridge).
Retrofit Lower Salt Creek Bridge at milepost 38.2 (east of Oakridge).
