SILETZ— A bridge resurfacing project will create a lane restriction and short delays for motorists traveling OR 229 near Siletz.
Beginning Monday, July 9 and continuing until Friday, July 13, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the bridge at milepost 24 near Siletz will be restricted to a single lane with flaggers controlling traffic. Motorists should expect 5-10 minute delays.
Additionally, on Monday, July 9 between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m., ODOT crews will be preparing the bridge surface for the work by shot blasting. Shot blasting is the process of blasting concrete with small steel shot. It removes soft concrete and prepares the surface for bonding. The process will create noise that might be heard by residents who live near the bridge.
The Siletz Bridge is one of more than a dozen bridges scheduled for sealing and resurfacing this summer. ODOT bridge crews will perform the work funded by the ODOT Region 2 maintenance budget.
