EUGENE – OR 569 Beltline Highway travelers should expect some early morning flagging between Roosevelt Boulevard and West 11th Avenue over the next two months for a bridge construction project. Crews began placing scaffolding under the bridge on Monday in preparation for the $1.2 million project. Most work will be done during the day behind barriers, with little impact to traffic.

A bridge over railroad track, called the SCS Canal Bridge, is being brought up to current standards with repairs and upgrades. Over the course of two months, the bridge will receive new bridge rails, seismic upgrades, bridge joints will be replaced, and concrete repaired. The bridge deck will also be paved with an overlay.

Travelers should be cautious of workers and equipment in the area. Watch for flaggers and expect delays for a few nights in September when work is occurring on the bridge.
