Beaver Creek and Fishtrap Creek Bridges
Coos County, Oregon
Start Date: Summer 2011
End Date: Summer 2012
Hamilton adds two more bridges to its list of project sites along the Oregon Coast with the demolition and reconstruction of the Beaver Creek and Fishtrap Creek bridges between Coquille and Coos Bay, Oregon. During construction at the Beaver Creek bridge location, traffic will be detoured onto a 250-ft. long detour structure. All foundation work for this new 250-ft. bridge will take place outside of the creek, thereby reducing impact to the resident trout and salmon population during and after construction. The Fishtrap Creek bridge will be replaced utilizing Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques during a 90-day bridge closure in the summer 2012.
