Iron CTH E over Alder Creek Emergency Bridge Design

« Return to Project Search

Iron County retained Ayres to replace a failed culvert pipe on CTH E at Alder Creek that caused significant flooding and led to a section of the highway washing out. Ayres’ emergency design replaced the culvert pipe with a single-span concrete flat slab bridge. Minor approach work was also completed at this site. A nearly $11,000 Federal Emergency Management Agency grant helped fund the project. Ayres staff worked aggressively to ensure that construction could begin quickly and be complete before the annual Paavo Nurmi Marathon that included CTH E on its course.
