LA GRANDE – North Second Street in La Grande will again be closed near the fairgrounds on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 6 and 7. Bicycles and pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will be allowed access through the work zone at all times. Work on this bridge will not affect traffic on Interstate 84.
The contractor will be grinding asphalt and paving both ends of the bridge. When paving is complete and the bridge reopens, watch for flaggers controlling traffic to accommodate the removal of the work platform, installation of protective screening, and sealing cracks on beams and supports.
This is a full closure to vehicles on North Second Street between Cedar Street, north of I-84, and Lake Avenue, south of the interstate. We will stage a detour around the work zone.
There will be one more closure before work on the bridge is complete. The contractor will need to lift the bridge to replace and repair support bearings. Once this work starts, the bridge will need to be closed for 2 to 3 weeks. We anticipate this work may start mid to late September.
