Transportation and Engineering Construction Projec
These improvements will widen the existing bridge over Deer Creek at Cougar Road. Work will also involve improvements to 2 of the 4 wing walls, and replacing guardrail with updated bridge rail. Funding will be used from the FASTER program for safety upgrades.
Since the start of construction on June 30, crews have completed several items:
Cougar Road has been closed for 3 of the 4 planned weeks. Next week, August 4 - 8, crews plan to finish the following items before opening the road:
Residents are reminded that the bridge is closed to routine traffic. This temporary closure is required for the safety of workers on the bridge, as well as vehicles and drivers. Please be aware that there are long nails, sharp pieces of cut steel and rebar on the bridge into Deer Creek 10 feet below that can damage vehicles and new bridge work, as well as potentially injure drivers and passengers.
Next week it is especially important for residents to stop crossing over the bridge during off-work hours. As preparations are made for final paving, there will be a very tacky black felt membrane placed on top of the bridge deck. Should a vehicle cross over this material it will damage the fabric, causing the work to be removed and reinstalled. This can delay the final paving, and bridge opening by up to two more working days. The tacky black material will also adhere to the offending vehicle, creating a mess on the tires and paint that is difficult to remove.
Once the bridge has been opened, crews will complete the final cleanup and restoration of the dirt parking area. Work is expected to be fully completed by the middle of August 2014.
