Bridges open house Thursday

Ashland residents can get a look at plans for new bridges over Interstate 5 near Ashland during a pair of open houses on Thursday.

The events are set from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Pioneer Hall, 73 Winburn Way, and from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Windsor Inn, 2520 Ashland St.

The Oregon Department of Transportation is in the planning stages for new bridges over the freeway at Ashland exits 14 and 19.

Both bridges will be widened and get new rails and lighting in the project, which has a budget of $32 million. Construction is due to be complete in 2012.
