Hwy 38 opens to traffic after repairs to bridge damaged by truck crash
SCOTTSBURG, Ore. - One lane of the Scottsburg Bridge reopened to traffic Sunday as workers continue repairing the bridge.
Work is expected to continue through the week. Expect delays up to 15 minutes.
A semi-truck crashed through a railing on the bridge on April 12.
The driver suffered minor injuries.
However, the Oregon Department of Transportation said they came close to losing the 88-year-old bridge completely.
The repair work is estimated to cost over $300,000.
The bridge was built in 1929.
ODOT has plans to replace the bridge, if and when funding becomes available.
