Neither Bridge projects are affecting I-84 traffic.
Contractors will also be repairing concrete and performing other minor tasks between MP4 and MP5 on HWY 30 in La Grande. Sidewalk closures, pedestrian detours and possible minor delays for motorists will occur through the duration of this project which is scheduled for completion in May.
In downtown Cove contractors will be repairing concrete and performing other minor tasks on HWY 237 at French Street. Sidewalk closures, pedestrian detours and possible minor delays for motorists should be expected. The project began in 2021 and is scheduled for completion in May.
