The existing culvert that carries Beaver Creek under SE Cochran Road will be replaced by a new bridge.

Project Information

  • Location: SE Cochran Road, between Troutdale Road and Paloma Ave
  • Schedule: Construction scheduled for summer 2019
  • Funding and Source: Construction cost is estimated at roughly $3 million, not including right of way costs.  County General Roadway Funds and Metro Natural Areas Bond Measure's Nature in Neighborhoods capital grant program.

Project Description

This project will replace the culvert that carries Beaver Creek under SE Cochran Road with a 60-foot long bridge. The existing culvert is too small and presents a barrier at times for fish passage.

The bridge will be built with a widened cross-section, providing more space for all modes of transportation. There will be two 12-foot traffic lanes with two 11-foot shoulders. The shoulders will allow space for 6-foot bike lanes and 5-foot sidewalks in the future.

Traffic Impacts

A full road closure will be necessary for the construction of the new bridge. A traffic plan will be developed before construction begins to suggest detour routes and minimize inconvenience to Cochran Road users.
