Depending on the bridge or slope being worked on there will either be no delays, short delays or full closures with some out of direction travel.
Depending on the bridges and phases of construction, there may be a variety of impacts, such as single lane closures or full closures with some out of direction travel.
Meetings and Events
A drop in open house was held October 20 in the area of Hillcrest Road for area neighbors and interested community members.
Our on line open house is still open for viewing:
Crews are scheduled to begin the first of two seasonal closures of the I-5 Hillcrest bridge.
- The first is Oct. 31, 2022 thru May 15, 2023.
- The second is Oct. 31, 2023 thru May 15, 2024.
Local traffic will see a full closure of Hillcrest Road. A detour will be signed using 9th Street, Savage Street to Beacon Drive.
The full closure is required due to narrow width of Hillcrest Road and due to the nature of the work on the bridge foundations and horizontal beams.
The needed two seasons are to avoid a single access during fire season.
A project open house was held October 20 for interested community members.

Other Bundle 1 Construction:
- Crews are nearing completion of the work on the I-5 Exit 58 bridges in north Grants Pass.
- The first set of bridges are complete on the I-5 Leland Road bridges at Sunny Valley.
- Improvements are complete on the I-5 Exit 80 Glendale bridges.
This Bundle is scheduled for completion in October 2022.
Crews are nearing completion on the Little Butte Creek Bridge, the last of four bridge improvements on Oregon 140 east of White City and the Sutherlin Creek Bridge on Del Rio Road, northwest of Roseburg.
This bundle bids in January 2023 with construction later that year. It replaces three bridges on OR 99 (Rogue River Highway) between City of Rogue River and the I-5 Exit 45A interchange. They are Foots Creek, Birdseye Creek and Millers Gulch Bridges.
It's anticipated the first slopes will begin in 2023.
Instead of one large project, this project is split between slopes and bridges for cost efficiencies.
Slopes: ~$13.3 million- this phase is currently in development.
Historic slopes have been tested for stabilizing with construction expected in 2023.
Repairs include rock buttress, anchors, retaining walls and drainage improvements.
They are located at:
- Interstate 5 in Jackson County at MP 2, MP 5.2, MP 10.3 and, in Douglas County, 114.6.
- Oregon 140, east of White City at MP 22.1
