Stewart Road/8th Street White River Bridge

Location: Stewart Road at the White River

Ideal Project Completion*: 2025

Description: This project will replace existing 2-lane bridge with a new 74-foot wide bridge with two unequal length spans. The new structure will accommodate 4 vehicle lanes, a sidewalk, and a trail crossing.

Benefits: The new bridge will alleviate the current bottleneck in the corridor to allow better traffic flow. The bridge will also support safe pedestrian movement across the bridge and connect to existing pedestrian facilities.

    While the existing bridge holds back a small amount of sediment due to its pier design, the new bridge will block less sediment, resulting in quicker sediment transport downsteream over the life of the bridge. A recent project environmental report analyzes the impact of this sediment transport.

    We will be initiating an official public comment period in Fall 2019 to meet requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, but you can take a look at the documents now in the documents section of this site.
