Here is a look at the wooden sub-structure of the Van Buren Bridge. ODOT plans to spend approximately $70 million to replace the 105-year-old bridge. The project will be discussed at a Thursday Corvallis City Council work session.

The Corvallis Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. at the downtown fire station, 400 NW Harrison Blvd. Commissioners are scheduled to deliberate on a proposal by Legend Homes that would expand by 22 lots its Russell Gardens subdivision at the intersection of Southwest 53rd Street and Country Club Drive.

Commissioners held a public hearing on the application at their July 3 session but postponed deliberations because of requests to hold the record open.

Also on the agenda is a public hearing on an application that seeks to change the zoning on property at the corner of Northeast Belvue Street and Jack London Street. Developers hope to build a self-storage facility on the 5.14-acre site.
