The existing Van Buren Bridge is a bottleneck to travelers and freight and is also considered seismically vulnerable
The current bridge is narrow, has low clearance for vehicles crossing, and has a weight restriction of 20,000 pounds for a single axle truck or 34,000 pounds for tandem axles.
The first steps are traffic analysis, environmental analysis, historic analysis and public outreach to ensure that current information and assumptions are being used in project development.
We're working closely with the City of Corvallis, Benton and Linn Counties throughout the three-year design process.
We appreciate your interest in this project. Please join us at one of our open houses or public meetings to learn about and comment on the project.
