Applegate River Bridge workers pouring it on ahead of concrete pour Prime contractor Carter and Company of Salem maintained a steady pace over the winter on the $5.9 million Applegate River Bridge replacement project. According to ODOT Project Manager Ted Paselk, construction workers have been tying steel to the concrete beams. Concrete pours are next on the construction schedule if the weather holds.
“If there’s seven days of good weather, Carter and Company will be out there pouring concrete,” said Paselk. “Should the weather turn cold, they will wait since the contractor doesn’t want to have to heat a freshly poured deck.” If the current schedule holds, traffic may be on the new bridge, which is located eight miles west of Grants Pass on the Redwood Highway (U.S. 199), as early as May.
