Clackamas County to close Barlow Road May 29 to Oct. 1 for road and bridge repairs

Clackamas County will close Barlow Road at Rock Creek (Long Bridge) from Tuesday, May 29, through Monday, Oct. 1, 2012, for road and bridge repairs.

The 24-hour-a-day closure, which will extend from Highway 211 to Bond Road, is needed to repair the failing northbound lane and guardrail, replace tow bridge timber pile caps and rehabilitate the stream bank.

Because one part of the project will require jacking up the bridge's superstructure, and another part will be rebuilding the failing northbound lane, the work zone will be completely closed to all traffic. Posted detour signs will direct traffic around the closure on nearby roads.
