Goodpasture Covered Bridge - McKenzie River (Project completed)

Completed: Yes
MTIP: None Construction Year: 2012
Jurisdiction: Lane County Mode: Road

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.
