U.S. 30 closed at Meacham Frontage Road Bridge Sept. 21-25

Sept. 16, 2020

More information: Tom Strandberg 541-963-1330, email 

The U.S. 30 Meacham Frontage Road Bridge located less than a mile north of Interstate 84 Exit 238 near Meacham will be closed Sept. 21-25. Detour signs will direct motorists around the work site via I-84 Exit 234. The closure is required to accommodate drilling operations that will provide required data for a bridge replacement project scheduled for 2023.


The existing reinforced concrete deck girder bridge was built in 1925. Extensive deterioration, increasing maintenance costs and potential safety concerns require a complete bridge replacement. Engineers will use soil samples and other data collected during next week’s operations to help design the new structure.


ODOT appreciates your patience and support during the time, please drive with extra caution along the detour route.


Where traffic is routed through or around a work zone, pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will also be provided routes through or around the work zone.
