The Oregon Dept. of Transportation (ODOT) will impose a lower load rating on the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate bridge effective March 3, 2021. The new load rating is the result of a directive by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requiring all states to evaluate the structural capacity of all bridges to carry Specialized Hauling Vehicles (single-unit trucks with closely spaced, multiple axles) and other load factors. Extensive structural analysis was carried out by ODOT’s engineers in 2020 on the bridge as part of this nationwide effort. The bridge is a steel truss structure that is nearly 100 years old. ODOT’s structural evaluation identified deficiencies in some bridge components that required the lower load rating.Read More
