Public Works - Contract 11-01 Klamath River Bridge Near Ash Creek

The project is located along Klamath River Road (M.P. 16.8) at the intersection with Hwy 96 (M.P.101.4) near Ash Creek. The structure consists of a two span bridge (Span 1-steel truss, Span 2-reinforced concrete slab) and approaches. The existing historic bridge built in 1901 will be removed.

The Big R Bridge, Inc. began fabrication of the truss on August 19, 2013 in Greeley, Colorado. The truss was delivered in October 2013. The steel truss is made with weathering steel, similar to the "Rusty Bridge" at Horse Creek, further down the Klamath River.

Stewart Engineering has completed the removal and re-construction of the northerly wing walls to accommodate some modifications to the shoulder widths as requested by CalTrans.

The project is currently in winter suspension but will resume Spring 2014. Completion is anticipated Summer 2014
