Bridge Maintenance Projects

Bridge scour projects either remove excess soil from stream channels or replace soil around foundations that has been washed away during high water events.

Projects scheduled for 2018

The following projects are scheduled for 2018. Additional projects will be added when they are confirmed.

Buckner Creek Road/Newkirchner Road Bridge over Buckner Creek

Kuehn Road Bridge over Kellogg Creek

Projects completed in 2017

Monte Cristo Road Bridge over Garrett Creek
Replaced decayed bridge piling, and excavated, graded and added support to the southern bank of the creek upstream of the bridge using boulders and native vegetation.

Wilhoit Road Bridge (near Bird Road) over Rock Creek
Excavated accumulated material on the upstream west bank of Rock Creek, installed boulders and native vegetation along a portion of the upstream east bank, and installed 2 “stream barbs” to minimize future erosion. (Stream barbs are structures that project out from a streambank to redirect water flow away from an eroding stream bank.

Casa Del Rey Pedestrian Bridge over Mt. Scott Creek
Installed boulders and native vegetation, and stabilized the support structure on the north end of the bridge. This bridge is owned by the City of Milwaukie and maintained by the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD). NCPRD asked the County Department of Transportation and Development to manage this project on their behalf.
