View of new bridge from Carver Boat Ramp
UPDATE: March 2017
Bridge: Work on the north and south approaches to the bridge began in October 2016, and has been held up by a complex legal dispute related to a water line. Once the dispute is settled, in-ground work will be completed, followed by reconstructing/paving and striping work on the approaches.
Highway 224/Springwater Road Intersection: Design work is at 90% on the signal project for this intersection. Exploratory drilling took place in November 2016 to determine the design of the signal pole bases, and the state is working on obtaining the necessary easements. Installation of the new traffic signal is tentatively projected during 2017. Updates on the traffic signal project may be found at http://www.clackamas.us/engineering/hwy224atspringwater.html.
The new Carver Bridge opened to traffic in February 2014, and the detour bridge and work bridge were removed by late summer 2014. However, because of issues related to a water line, the area remains a construction zone, with reduced speed limits and occasional delays.
Construction to replace the Carver Bridge began in spring 2012, after several years of planning and outreach. The bridge was replaced at its previous location.
