Culvert collapses beneath Hwy 99 near Oak Street Bridge
It was single lane traffic northbound on Highway 99, near the Oak Street Bridge Tuesday morning after the roadway buckled when the culvert which runs the width of the highway collapsed.
Tuesday morning's commute became much messier when a section of Highway 99 roadway buckled just south of the Oak Street Bridge. According to a Mainroad Contracting worker, it's believed a section of culvert that spans the width of the highway, collapsed. An engineer was being brought in to assess the damage, and traffic was reduced to just a single lane. But could the day's commute get worse? The engineer will have to determine whether the other half of the culvert is at risk of collapse, which would impact southbound traffic during the Tuesday afternoon commute. The culvert connects a waterway that runs from one side of the highway to the other.
