Meacham Road over East Fork Dairy Creek Bridge
This project replaced the previous four-span bridge with a new single-span steel bridge structure. The new bridge is 70-feet long consisting of two 11-foot travel lanes.
The Meacham Road bridge at East Fork Dairy Creek is a critical crossing that serves as the only access for the properties west of the bridge. The previous bridge had been damaged as a result of large debris collecting on and between the bridge piles within the creek. Replacing the bridge with a single span structure now allows debris to pass freely under the bridge and alleviates the previous debris loading issue.
This $882,700 project was funded through a combination of sources: $662,025 was funded through a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation grant administered through the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. $220,675 was funded through the County's Road Fund.
