HEBO – Beginning on Tuesday, September 27, at 8 a.m. a section of OR 22 at milepost 10.86 near Dolph Junction will be closed to traffic in both directions in order for crews to replace a wood bridge deck. The road will reopen at 4 p.m. on September 29.
During the time of the closure, a detour will be available by using OR 18. Message boards will be placed in advance to warn travelers and trucking and to notify freight mobility.
The closure is necessary for an Oregon Department of Transportation crew to do maintenance work on the bridge. This work includes grinding a 2-1/2 inch layer of existing pavement off of the bridge in order to access and remove the current wood deck. After the wood has been removed, new wood will be placed and repaved with a layer of asphalt. Guard rails and bridge rails will also be replaced as an extension of this project.
