    Cougar Road over Deer Creek, Bridge Widening


    Project Scope

    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.

    Project Update (as of July 2, 2014) 

    Technology Constructors, Inc. has been selected as the general contractor for the bridge widening contract. Crews started work at the southeast corner of the bridge to repair and extend the wing wall.

    Cougar Road will be closed to traffic on July 7 for a period of 4 weeks. The closure is necessary for crews to work on the deck and complete the bridge widening, as well as southwest wing wall repairs. Crews will also install updated bridge safety railing. The bridge is expected to be re-opened to full traffic by August 7, 2014.

    Drivers can access the White Deer Valley HOA via Grizzly Drive, 1 mile west of Cougar Road on Deer Creek Canyon Road during the road closure.
