Oleson Road Bridge over Fanno Creek


This project will replace the Oleson Road bridge over Fanno Creek.  The existing bridge floods during high water events, often requiring the bridge to be closed until water recedes.  Due to the regular flooding, the bridge’s timber beams are in poor condition also contributing to the need to replace the bridge.

Bridge replacement improvements include:

  • Constructing the bridge above flood levels
  • Constructing the bridge to match up to the future Oleson Road realignment project
  • Complete the 400 foot roadway gap between the bridge and the previous Oleson Road improvement project that ended near Dover Street

This bridge replacement project will require an 8 month road closure. For more information about the road closure, click on the “Closures” section link to the right.
 
This bridge replacement was originally scheduled to be replaced as part of the Oleson Road Realignment Project. At this time, funding for right-of-way acquisition and construction has not been identified for the realignment project.  However, the county applied for and was awarded a federal funding match for the bridge replacement portion of the realignment project.
