ODOT proposes to replace two narrow and structurally deficient bridges and widen US 62. Bridge A is a 31-foot wide reinforced concrete box on the unnamed tributary (S-1) and Bridge B is a 26-foot wide span pier supported bridge over Cane Creek. The proposed replacement bridges would be two 40-foot wide span pier supported bridges on the existing alignment. The proposed roadway is wider due to the higher vertical profile to meet Federal highway design safety standards . During the final grading for the permanent road , approximately 916 linear feet of S-1 would be relocated 60 feet west from the current location to protect the highway and associated bridge from erosion and ma inta in safe side slopes on the road embankment. The new approach roadway would have two 12-foot wide paved driving lanes and 8-foot wide paved shoulders. US 62 would remain open to traffic during construction with the use of a "shoo-fly" detour to divert traffic. A 121-foot temporary culvert will be used under the detour and removed once construction is complete.
