Silverton Road Bridge Replacement Project
Silverton Road Closure & Load Rating
Marion County has received federal funds to replace the Silverton Road Bridge over the Little Pudding River. The project is located on Silverton Road between 60th Avenue and 64th Place. The County has awarded the contract for construction to Farline Bridge, Inc., of Stayton Oregon and work has begun.
Silverton Road will close to through traffic between 60th Avenue and 64th Place on May 12, 2021, and will reopen by Thanksgiving of 2021.
Throughout the closure, two well-marked detour routes will be in place as shown on the linked project website.
Closing Silverton Road during construction ensures that all of the in-water work can occur within the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's designated in-water work window for the Little Pudding River in one construction season. Silverton Road will be reopened prior to the start of the holiday shopping season, a commitment made by Marion County to the Silverton business community.
A new load rating analysis was recently completed for this bridge. As a result of ODOT's analysis, the load limit signs have been updated as shown in the sign exhibit attached. This new load limit will remain in effect until the road is closed on May 3rd. The new bridge will not be load limited for any legal or legally permitted loads.
