HARRISBURG, Ore. – Work is beginning Monday night on the Willamette River bridge in Harrisburg.
Workers are going to raise the bridge to have a clearance of 16 feet, two feet higher than it’s current clearance.
If you’re traveling near the area, expect delays. Traffic will be controlled by flaggers Monday through Friday from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Workers are going to be very cautious of local wildlife as well. The work on the bridge won’t disturb osprey nests that are already there, as most of the work will be away from them.
