ODOT works on Willamette River bridge

Oregon Department of Transportation crews are working on the northbound crossing of the Willamette River Bridge project, their largest replacement project ever.

The Interstate-5 bridges, which connect the cities of Eugene and Springfield, are also the agency’s first to use a construction manager/general contractor delivery system.
