Section of road expected to close
WALLOWA — The Oregon Department of Transportation’s contractor JAL Construction will be closing a short section of Whiskey Creek Road 5.5 miles east of Wallowa starting the week of Sept. 8 or Sept. 15. The closure is expected to last for two weeks.
Media notices and signs posted in the area will announce the actual dates once they are confirmed. The road closure is needed to accommodate the replacement of the existing culvert. Travelers will need to take alternate routes while the road section is blocked off for construction work.
“The two-week closure was originally scheduled to take place earlier this summer, but had to be postpone,” said ODOT Assistant Project Manager Mike Remily. “The project will replace the aging culvert with a new single span bridge and remove an existing fish passage barrier for steelhead and Chinook salmon.”
Rapid reconstruction methods are being used on the $350,000 project to help expedite the work. These include installing bridge pilings prior to closing the road and using precast bridge abutment walls and deck slabs to save valuable construction time.
“ODOT realizes the 14-day road closure will result in some impacts to travelers and we will work to get the route open as soon as possible,” Remily said.
