Bridge supports for the Highway 20 project between Philomath and Newport are being demolished, even though the bridge has never been built.
Ancient slides in the area push the supports out of alignment. ODOT's Rick Little says they've reengineered the project to eliminate bridges and use culverts. The project is millions of dollars over-budget.
ODOT replaced the original contractor and took over the project, so it could be reengineered and finished.
