A short section of Main Street will be closed under the Scottsburg Bridge in Scottsburg for approximately two weeks, beginning as early as Monday.
An update from the Oregon Department of Transportation said the closure is due to drilling work. Highway traffic crossing the bridge will not be affected.
During the Main Street closures, ODOT will reopen the short spur that connects Scottsburg West Road with Oregon 38 at the north end of the bridge. Signs and message boards will be in place. Motorists should watch for construction workers and equipment in the work area.
The update said the closure will allow prime contractor Hamilton Construction to drill shafts for the foundations of the new bridge piers.
The current Scottsburg Bridge will remain open to traffic until a new bridge opens in the spring of 2022.
