Summary: The construction of the Tioga Bridge and the Emerald Trail will occur in stands of conifer forest that are 110-170 years old but have indications of human disturbance within the last 60 years. The existing, concrete piers on which Tioga Bridge will be placed were themselves part of an existing road system that was washed out in 1964 (i.e. the Young's Bay Bridge).

Document Publish Date: 7/28/2009
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) administers 2,142 acres of the Wild and Scenic River Corridor, including the Susan Creek Day-Use Area and the Tioga segment of the North Umpqua Trail. The Tioga segment runs for 16 miles between the Wright Creek and Swiftwater trailheads, making it the longest section of the North Umpqua Trail. It is underused due to its length and the level of difficulty for access. The BLM proposes to construct a footbridge (hereafter referred to as the Tioga Bridge) across the existing piers to provide access over the River to the Tioga segment of the North Umpqua Trail.
