Stewart Parkway Bridge completely reopens


ROSEBURG, OR – Stewart Parkway Bridge fully reopened Tuesday, June 15, ahead of schedule following maintenance work.

Contractors replaced end panels and expansion joints so the bridge over the South Umpqua River can expand and contract with temperatures.

The project, which replaced 20-foot heavy concrete slabs that tie the asphalt roadway to the concrete bridge, cost $343,739.25 and was completed three days before the expected completion on Friday, June 18.

Funding for the work is coming from the city’s Transportation Fund.

During the maintenance work, the northbound lane of Stewart Parkway was closed from Harvard Avenue to Stewart Park Drive. One lane remained open at all times so southbound traffic could use the parkway through the repair zone.

The city appreciates motorists’ understanding and patience throughout the project.
