FLORENCE – Everyone celebrating the 4th of July in Florence is reminded that the Siuslaw Bridge east sidewalk remains closed for construction. The west sidewalk is open to all to enjoy the walk and the view.

The Siuslaw River Bridge Protection Project has been repairing damaged concrete, applying a surface coating to protect the structure from corrosion, adding sidewalk features, installing seismic upgrades, and replacing bridge railings. Much of the project is complete.

The east sidewalk is closed because work continues on the bridge railings and there are tripping and other work zone hazards.

The project is on schedule to be completed in 2019.
