House Rock Camp Trail Bridge

Owner:
United States of America
US Department of Agriculture
Forest Service Region Six

Architect:
The Forest Service

Location:
Willamette National Forest



This U.S. Forest Service project involved installation of a prefabricated bridge structure in a very remote and environmentally sensitive section of the Willamette National Forest, Linn County, Oregon. As such, the project required special environmental considerations and construction techniques. Site specific environmental controls and fire prevention measures were installed prior to the start of construction. Only a small window of opportunity was available for the construction of the bridge, between the end of the fire season and the onset of winter weather, requiring close coordination with the fabricator of the bridge. Due to the remote location and limited access, the bridge materials and components were flown in utilizing a heavy cargo aircraft helicopter. The same aircraft was used to set the full span bridge girders. With the girders in place the balance of the bridge was assembled in place.
