The proposed amendment will increase construction funding for the Oregon 38: Umpqua River (Scottsburg) Bridge Replacement project in Region 3 by $7,473,931 so that the contract can be awarded. This increase is due to higher than expected bids. The total estimated cost of the project will increase from $40,398,000 to $47,871,931.
Additional funding will come from (1) the Oregon 126: Willamette River Westbound Bridge painting project located in Springfield and (2) the existing House Bill 2017 (2017 Transportation Funding) Discretionary balance. The preliminary engineering and right-of-way phases of the Oregon 126 project will continue as programmed, but the construction phase will be cancelled until future funding becomes available.
Comments will be accepted through April 16, 2020.
