Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge

We are taking the lead in making the Burnside Bridge earthquake-ready.  The project is in the planning, or environmental review, phase. The project will ensure we have a bridge that can withstand a major earthquake and remain open to all forms of travel.   Construction is expected to begin in 2025.  

Morrison Bridge Painting

The steel on the two fixed and two moveable river spans of the Morrison Bridge will be repainted starting in January 2022, with project completion in summer 2023. The existing paint is peeling and must be replaced to avoid corrosion of the structural steel members.

Broadway Bridge Lift Deck Replacement

In 2023, we will replace the deck of the Broadway Bridge's lift spans, as well as repair the brakes that help control their speed.

Hawthorne Bridge Paving and Repair

In 2024, a contractor will repave and make other repairs to the Hawthorne Bridge. Construction crews will repair deteriorated deck concrete and place a new deck surface, as well as replace deck joints for both the east and west sides of the bridge.
