Project Overview

This project replaces a bridge and reconstructs the adjacent roadway along a segment of Cascade Lakes Highway. The Project is located approximately 24 miles west of the City of Bend, in Deschutes County, Oregon. Estimated current traffic volumes are 1000 summer vehicles per day.

Major work items on this project include removal of the existing bridge structure, bridge construction, roadway excavation and embankment, asphalt concrete pavement, and roadway aggregate.

Project Background

The Cascade Lakes Highway is a heavily used route by commercial traffic, recreationists, motorcycle, automotive clubs, bicyclists, and campers. In 2003 the sufficiency rating of this structure was 82, in 2012 it dropped to 47. The original design was to an H-15 standard and has been outdated for many years. The stringers with the concrete deck are shallower than necessary. Also, the vertical clearance above the water causes the water to back-up against the structure in the spring and debris collects around the piling. Temporary shoring has been utilized but the structure needs to be replaced.
