Summary: The BLM Frank's Creek Bridge was built in 1965 and is in need of replacement due to deterioration from bug infestations, rot, and wear. The proposed action is to first, create a temporary crossing downstream of the Franks Creek Bridge. When the temporary crossing is installed, the current timber superstructure (girders and deck system) will be removed and a new pre-casted concrete superstructure will be placed on the existing concrete footings. Design of superstructure will be consistent with the Journey Through Time Scenic Byway designation of US Highway 26 and when possible, will provide habitat for bats by incorporating cracks and crevices 6 inches or greater in depth and 0.5 -1.25 inches wide into the design. Reference pictures with labeling for different parts of a bridge are at the end of this document.
