Temporary lane closure on Rice Creek Bridge begins
ROSEBURG, Ore. – Douglas County Public Works Department is temporarily reducing traffic to a single lane of travel on Rice Creek Bridge beginning Monday, March 12.
The temporary lane closure on Rice Creek Bridge #19C211, located on Rice Creek Road at milepost 1.4, is due to current inspection reports.
On Monday, Public Works will install warning signs and delineators to notify the traveling public of the traffic change.
"Please note that the lane closure will impact your drive time," officials said in a news release. "Safety is always a priority for the motoring public and we are asking motorists to use caution as they travel thru the area."
The lane reduction will remain in place indefinitely as the department works on a solution to get the bridge re-opened to two lanes of traffic.
