Oregon Highway 22: North Santiam Highway Bridge Replacement Project
Another project is on the North Santiam Highway 22 between milepost 60 and 76, about 10 miles east of Detroit. The contractor replaced the existing Whitewater Creek, Marion Creek, Pamelia Creek and North Santiam River bridges and established traffic on these new structures. The bridges are all within a 17 mile stretch of Highway 22.
Work on this project has been completed, with the exception of some minor repair work. That means motorists should use caution when approaching these locations and should expect intermittent temporary daytime delays from Monday through Friday. Work is dependent on weather. US 20: Lake Creek Bridge Replacement Project A project on Santiam Highway at milepost 87 replaced the Lake Creek Bridge near the entrance to Suttle Lake. Some roadwork, asphalt paving, guardrailing, striping, signing and other safety improvements are yet to be done. Special permits are required for over-width vehicles. All annually permitted over-width loads are directed to use Highway 58. Motorists should use caution when approaching this location and should expect intermittent temporary daytime delays from Monday through Friday. Oregon Highway 22, Highway 99W and Highway 223 Interchange at Rickreall This is the interchange project funded by the Oregon Transportation Investment Act. The scope of work includes, but is not limited to, the construction of two bridges that will eliminate the current crossings at the intersections of OR 22 & OR 99W and OR 22 & OR 223. In addition, a new traffic signal will be added to the intersection of Rickreall Road and Highway 99W. These major portions of the work will improve traffic flow, as well as overall public safety. The new traffic signal at the intersection of OR 99W and Rickreall Road is in operation. Currently, the signal phasing is on a fixed cycle, but after the top lift paving is completed later this summer, vehicle detection loops will be installed to control the traffic movements. The improvement and modernization of this intersection is necessary to provide Dallas - Rickreall Highway traffic with a means to access OR 99W. When the project is completed, motorists traveling eastbound out of Dallas on OR 223 that want to travel either northbound or southbound on OR 99W, will need to use Rickreall Road. Motorists should expect daytime delays on the Dallas Rickreall Hwy. and OR 99W from the intersection of Rickreall Road to OR 22. OR 22: Fir Grove Lane Gun Creek
This project affects North Santiam Highway from milepost 16.8 to milepost 26.0 and from milepost 38.5 to milepost 39.6 on Oregon Highway 22, the North Santiam Highway, beginning at Fir Grove Lane, west of Mehama, and ending at Gun Creek, just east of Little Sweden area, near Big Cliff Dam.
This project includes asphalt repaving, striping, guardrailing, signing and providing other safety improvements. This work began in mid-March 2006 and paving is now complete.
Motorists should still use caution in these areas and expect intermittent daytime and nighttime delays. Flaggers will control traffic in the work zone. Oregon Highway 221 Between Dayton and Salem This projecton the Salem Dayton Highway from milepost 0.20 to milepost 17.30 is a preservation-paving project that also includes improvements to mailbox turnouts, guardrail, and signing. In addition, the contractor will be reconstructing the roadway surfacing on both ends of the Spring Creek Bridge at milepost 12.5 and Palmer Creek Bridge at milepost 0.70.
