Boulder Creek Bridge paving tomorrow on the Paisley Ranger District

PAISLEY, Ore. – The Boulder Creek Bridge on Fremont-Winema National Forest Road 28 will be paved tomorrow, Monday, August 3, on the Paisley Ranger District.

While there is not a road closure in place, the public is encouraged to avoid the area if possible.  For those traveling in the area who need to cross the bridge, delays up to 2 hours can be expected.

The Boulder Creek Bridge is located on the 28 Road, just south of Forest Road 28-332, also known as the Slide Mountain Road.  The north end of the bridge is located just before the Hanan and Sycan Trailhead and Campground.

The bridge was replaced last summer, but conditions were too cold for paving.  Conditions are more favorable now and the paving should be completed successfully tomorrow.

Road striping on the bridge is expected to occur within the month, but there should be minimal impacts with that work.
