Decker Road in south Benton County is currently open but is not paved in the slide repair area. This projectcontinues the repairs from the 2012 winter storm and is the 2nd and final phase of the project. Jim Stouder is the Project Manager.
Norton Creek Road:
Benton County Public Works is removing a bridge, installing a new multi-plate culvert, and realigning the roadway at milepost 1.25. A majority of the planned work is taking place outside the existing roadway so delays to traffic should be minimal. The new roadway alignment is currently open.
Thank you for your patience. More information is available by contacting Benton County Public Works at 541-766-6821.
Bailey Branch Railroad:
The Union Pacific Railroad has retained a private contractor to remove rail and ties to complete their abandonment of the line from approximately Greenberry Road to Monroe and Dawson. Benton County doesn’t have direct involvement in this work but as the owner of the right of way, we will strive to keep adjacent property owners informed of the work. The contractor has provided a tentative start time of early February. If you have any question please contact the Public Works Department at 541-766-6821 and ask for Laurel Byer, Laurie Starha, or Joe Mardis.
