Sept. 1, 2022 — Delays are expected on the Siuslaw Bridge overnight on Wednesday, Sept. 7 as crews continue work on bridge improvements. Traffic will be flagged through bridge construction beginning at 10 p.m., while all traffic will be held between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m.
Crews are completing the replacement of the span locks in the lift spans, the big pins that lock the center of the lift spans together when the bridge is down. Initial work was done in early August. Some lift span parts of the historic bridge, which crews planned to reuse, broke when removed and had to be made before the project could be completed. No additional noise is expected from the project.
Pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will have access through or around the work zone.
