Clackamas County will close one lane on E Brightwood Loop Road east of the Hwy 26 intersection in the Mt. Hood Village area Thursday, Jan. 31, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for bridge repairs.
During a routine bridge inspection in late Sept. 2018, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) discovered minor erosion along the foundation of the Brightwood Loop Bridge. The lane closure is needed so work crews can add boulders and streambed gravel along a portion of the bridge foundation to stabilize the bridge supports and minimize future erosion.
The road will remain open during construction, but there will be lane closures and delays of up to 20 minutes at a time. Travelers will be assisted by flaggers and are asked to slow down and use caution near the work zone.
Project updates will be posted at www.bit.ly/roadClosures.
