U.S. Highway 395 – McKay Creek to Silvies Slough Bridge Replacement | , Oregon
ODOT | Wildish Standard Paving Co.
This project replaced seven deteriorated bridges and repaired one bridge along a 250 mile route from Pendleton to Burns, Oregon. All of the structures were over the John Day River and its tributaries with in-water work windows varying from four weeks to six weeks. Concrete box beams, Bulb-T’s, Bulb-I’s and steel girders were used. The steel girder structure was a single span 220-foot bridge, the second longest single steel span in the state. Structures located within the “wild and scenic corridor” required aesthetic features.
