Stewart Parkway Bridge maintenance starts May 18


ROSEBURG, OR – City contractors will begin preventative maintenance to the Stewart Parkway Bridge over the South Umpqua River on Tuesday, May 18.

The project, which will replace 20-foot heavy concrete slabs that tie the roadway asphalt to the bridge, will cost $343,739.25 and is expected to be completed by Friday, June 18. Funding for the work is coming from the city’s Transportation Fund.

During this 30-day period, the northbound lane of Stewart Parkway will be closed from Harvard Avenue to Stewart Park Drive (the west entrance into Stewart Park).

However, one lane will remain open on Stewart Parkway at all times so southbound traffic can continue to use the parkway through the repair zone.

A detour will reroute northbound traffic around the road closure using Harvard Avenue, I-5 and Garden Valley Boulevard. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Roseburg Healthcare System campus is closed to public through-traffic, so the campus cannot be used as a detour.

The city appreciates motorists’ understanding and patience throughout the project, and asks southbound Stewart Parkway motorists to use caution when traveling through the work zone.
