OR 58: Salt Creek Tunnel and Half Viaducts (Project completed)

Completed: Yes
MTIP: None Construction Year: 2013
Jurisdiction: Oregon Dept. of Transportation (ODOT) Mode: Road

Built in 1939, the tunnel needs serious repair, and the adjacent west half viaduct and the three east half viaducts are failing and need to be replaced.  The half viaducts have exposed reinforcement bar, severe cracks in concrete and are currently braced and supported by temporary timber bracing that ODOT maintenance put in place in 2008.  In addition, the tunnel liner is cracked and leaking; the tunnel has limited vertical clearance; and the tunnel floor is in disrepair.

The following work remains to be completed:

  • Construction of two remaining viaducts (bridges)
  • Construction of the bridge rails
  • Installation of  two Variable Message Signs
  • Completion of  final paving and striping
  • Completion of electrical revisions
  • Placement of all permanent signs

ODOT is committed to completing the project as soon as possible and is optimistic that construction can resume in 2015.
