New weight restrictions on Main Street bridge

Effective Wednesday Dec. 21, 2011 the weight limit posting on the Main Street Bridge was  reduced to 16 ton for Type 3 trucks, closed to Type 3S-2 (truck and trailer), said Gary Shipley of Eagle Point Public works.  Shipley said the bridge will be closed to Type 3-3 trucks (doubles).

ODOT Bridge Inspectors have conducted their annual inspection of the Main Street Bridge and have determined 16 ton to be the safe operating limit for the age and condition of the Main Street Bridge.

This will still permit ambulances and vehicles such as UPS to cross the bridge but will not allow heavy construction trucks. For more information contact Shipley at 541-826-4212 ext. 136.
