NIGHT CLOSURE OF US HIGHWAY 101
AT KLAMATH RIVER BRIDGE
Caltrans has announced there will be a full overnight closure of
US Highway 101 at the Klamath River Bridge, also known as the G. H.
Douglas Memorial Bridge, near Klamath in order to allow for the
removal of equipment from beneath the bridge.
When: 10PM, Sunday, October 13, through 4AM, Monday,
October 14, 2013
A second full nighttime closure may be necessary from 10PM,
Monday, October 14, through 4AM, Tuesday, October 15. If
this second closure becomes in effect, it will be announced,
and electronic signs will be used to alert motorists beginning
the morning of Monday, October 14.
Why: The Klamath River Hinge Project is replacing three hinges on
the bridge in order to extend the service life of the structure. A
hinge is a vital part of a bridge that allows it to expand and
contract with changes in temperature.
