TUMALO, Ore. -

As a portion of ongoing scheduled maintenance, the Deschutes County Road Department will be replacing the wooden deck on the bridge over the Tumalo Irrigation Canal (Tumalo Reservoir Feed Canal) on South Sisemore Road, approximately 500 feet south of Tumalo Reservoir Road. 

Preliminary work will begin on Monday, December 10, with the actual replacement of the deck occurring on Tuesday, December 11, at which time the road will be closed between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Provisions will be made for local residential access and emergency service access during construction. Because of limited access to the area, Deschutes County Road staff asks all non-essential users to avoid use of the bridge during the deck replacement.
