The Tribe officially marked the rehabilitation of 3.91 miles of Agency
Creek Road on Friday, Sept. 28, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The
rehabilitation work was between the junction at Grand Ronde Road
to the junction with Yoncalla Creek Road and included replacement of
37 corrugated metal culverts with new HDPE culverts. Tribal Project
Engineer Manager Jesse White said many of the existing culverts
were completely corroded away. The existing 96-inch culvert at Joe
Creek was replaced with a new 1 1 6-inch arch culvert that will allow
better fish passage. The existing asphalt was pulverized and areas
in the road that had failed were repaired. Four inches of asphalt
concrete was placed over the entire project's length. The budget
was $1,546 million and the projected was completed on budget.
Attending the ribbon cutting were, from left, White, Cascade Design
Project Engineer Jessie King, K&E Excavating foreman Mike Acuff,
Tribal Council Chairman Reyn Leno, Tribal Council Secretary Toby
McClary, Tribal Public Works Manager John Mercier, Tribal Executive
Officer Chris Leno, Tribal Senior Forester Zach Haas and Tribal Timber
& Roads Program Manager Jeff Kuust.
