Document Description
The Department of Parks and Recreation proposes to install annually two summer seasonal Bailey bridges on the South Fork Eel River to provide vehicle access to portions of campgrounds at Richardson Grove State Park and Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area. The bridges can vary in length seasonally to match the dynamic river bar, allowing the river to be spanned without moving material into the summer flow channel. A temporary road would be constructed across the river bar to the bridge location connecting paved access points at each campground. Bridge approach roads would be constructed by heavy equipment moving on-site river gravel. The final graded road surface would be watered and compacted before public use. Bridge abutments would consist of gravel-filled concrete pipes or large boulders back-filled with river gravel. Bridge installation would involve the use of heavy equipment to move and align parts and hand tools to assemble. Bridge segments would be assembled on dry ground, moved into place on rollers, and suspended thereby avoiding disturbance to the summer low flow channel. The bridges and approach roads would be dismantled and removed prior to the onset of winter season flows, and the river bar would be excavated back to original grade, width, and alignment.
