The stretch of OR 99E between SE Harold Street and SE Harrison Street was last replaced in 1994 and the deteriorated pavement needs to be repaired.
The old highway roadbed was made of jointed concrete. It is still in the middle of the highway and covered with a thin layer of asphalt.
Years ago, the highway was widened by adding pavement at the edges of the concrete roadbed. The part that was widened was built on soft soil, and was not designed to accommodate the amount of vehicle traffic that uses the highway today.
The pavement built on soil has since failed and requires ongoing maintenance that costs money and impacts motorists. Instead of continuing to make short term and temporary fixes, this project will fully rebuild these sections of the roadway to provide a long-term solution.
In addition to the paving and striping work, there will be other improvements, including:
This small bridge over Crystal Springs Creek has rotting wood in its piles and crossbeams and is nearing the end of its useful life. It will be replaced by a culvert, which is quicker to construct, less expensive than building a new bridge, and will be seven feet wider. The additional width will help improve fish passage for Coho Salmon, Chinook Salmon, and Steelhead Trout.
Seven trees (Sugar Maples) will be removed to facilitate the bridge work, including five on the east side and two on the west side. One of the trees is already dead. After the project is over, the area will be revegetated with new trees and shrubs. ODOT is in the midst of finalizing the replanting plan.
