Goodpasture Covered Bridge - McKenzie River
The bridge construction will generally be finishing up this week. There will be a final walk through on Monday and the temporary signs are scheduled to be removed and reattached to the bridge on Tuesday. The Contractor will be on site cleaning up and finishing up miscellaneous items over the next month.
The lights are planned to be on starting Monday night. The lights are programed to come on 30 minutes before dusk and go off 30 minutes after dawn.
The bridge will remain posted at the 20 ton weight limit for now until final engineering analysis, which is expected to be completed within a month.
Work activity will be light, nonetheless, please exercise caution while going through the construction zone and watch for workers and construction equipment. For additional information, please contact Brad Lemhouse (541) 682-6928 or email@example.com
Purpose of Work
- Correct sagging of the covered bridge
- Restore the capacity of the bridge to carry legal loads
- Replacement of decaying structural member
- Install permanent bridge lighting
Proposed Solution The work will include installation of temporary steel trusses to support the bridge while work is underway, provision of a post-tensioning system to restore the load capacity of the bridge, and “tuning” of the bridge by tightening the hanger rods to alleviate the sag. Decaying structural members will be replaced, as well as all of the bridge decking of the main span and north approach span. Upon completion, the temporary steel trusses will be removed.
