Project Scope

This was a publically bid project, awarded to AEC as the lowest qualified bidder.  The scope of work consisted of woody debris, silt & vegetation removal & the restoration of fish habitat.

AEC constructed temporary roads & bridge while over 2,000 cubic yards of material was cleared then over 3,300 tons of material was imported for embankment & roadway fill.

A new 315 lineal foot super structure bridge was installed and now spans the middle fork of Hood River.  This new bridge will span the ordinary high water mark and will be protected from any future flooding events.

The middle fork of the Hood River is home to the endangered Bull Trout, Chinook Salmon & Steelhead making this project extremely sensitive.
