Don’t worry, the bridge is safe at Smith Rock.
UPDATE November 15 per park management:
There is no hard timeline on a bridge replacement. It’s in the next budget cycle 2019 – 2021. The exact location and design are in the process of being developed. The current construction is intended to limit the number of people on the bridge at one time and center the load.
November 13, 2018
Part of the greater plan to widen the footbridge over the Crooked River, a contractor will be working to install a weight limiting system on the footbridge. Construction may result in some limited closures of around 10-20 minutes. Work started yesterday and will run until the 15th. If anything changes we’ll be sure to let you know on our Facebook page.
