8th Street Bridge Replacement

The project in eastern Oregon replaced a 110-year-old historic bridge with a new structure that meets current design standards while honoring the historic nature of the site and its surrounding area. Originally built in 1909, the existing bridge was load restricted for more than a decade prior to its replacement. The new bridge maintains critical connections for neighbors on either side of the Umatilla River and, because it more readily accommodates the flow of commercial and residential traffic, it provides the City of Pendleton with opportunities to grow.

Key elements of the project included:

  • Replacement of a historic steel truss with a new weathering steel truss
  • A constrained project site adjacent to residential areas
  • A significant and comprehensive public outreach program during to engage the community throughout project development
  • Challenging weather that limited scheduling of construction activities
