LA PINE, OR -- The Oregon Department of Transportation says work on the Highway 97 Wickiup Overcrossing north of La Pine will remain at a stand-still until more studies can be done on the land surrounding the structure. The project was suspended in May after crews noticed land was sinking under the weight of the new bridge. 

 

ODOT is bringing in a geotechnical group, including the Federal Highway Administration, to gather subsurface data and perform additional testing. That analysis is expected to continue through September. The agency says work will not resume until the investigation is complete.
 
The $17 million project is designed to take highway traffic over the railroad tracks and improve safety on Highway 97 in South County.
