BEND, OR -- An old wood bridge on the Cascade Lakes Highway will be replaced with a new concrete span, this summer. Work on the Fall Creek Bridge, at milepost 26.57, is expected to begin Monday.
Just up the road, the Deschutes National Forest and county road crews will replace the undersized Goose Creek culvert with a new concrete arch culvert, in an effort to enhance fish passage. That project, at milepost 26.85, gets underway in July.
Both projects are funded in part by the Federal Lands Access Program and should be done by late October.
