Comment on plans for bridge, wetlands
Two public meetings this week are calling for community participation, starting with an open house about the Gales Creek Road Bridge Project tonight, Wednesday, May 13, at the Gales Creek Fire Station, 52155 N.W. Old Wilson River Road.
From 5 to 7 p.m., Washington County planners will answer questions about proposed replacement of the structurally deficient existing bridge that runs over Gales Creek 500 feet south of Old Wilson River Road. There will be no formal presentation.
A new bridge would be built above the flood plain and widened to provide two 12-foot-wide lanes with shoulders to accommodate cyclists and farm equipment.
Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2016. Funding is provided through the countys Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP).
