Bridge Projects

 Blue Bluff Bridge Project
Due to the deterioration of the Blue Bluff Bridge it was slated for repair for Fiscal Year 2011. The structure of this bridge was deteriorating- the approaches were dug out and reinforced. The support pylon under the bridge were washing out around the base therefore making the structure weak. Rip Rap was hauled in, placed under the bridge, lined along the apron walls and placed around the pylon about 8 feet from the bottom to the top of the pylon to strengthen the bridge. The project was started around February 18, 2011 and was completed at around April 4, 2011.
