Road maintenance

County crews keeping busy

Lane County's Bridge Crew was busy last week replacing about 80 damaged deck boards throughout the Goodpasture Covered Bridge. Increased traffic there had caused accelerated wear and tear. The work was done to help protect the stringers underneath (which support the bridge deck) and help keep the structure in good repair. (top photo)

The other part of the Bridge Crew was busy replacing guardrails along Blue River Road, leading to the Blue River Dam. Existing guardrails there were fire-damaged as well as hit by falling trees. Drivers will notice the new guardrails are higher and closer to the road than the previous decades-old guardrail to meet current safety standards. (bottom photo)
