JWF worked to replace an over-water bridge deck and bridge rail in Klamath Falls, OR. The bridge spans a length of 1,800 linear feet over the Link River, a live fish bearing stream. JWF worked closely with various entities including Fish and Wildlife, DEQ, and ODOT. Crews demolished and removed the old existing deck and used a hydro blast method to remove the deck concrete with high pressure water. Over 400 cubic yards of high strength 4000 psi concrete was poured and a new driving surface built using company-owned deck finishing machinery, which minimized cost.

All expansion joints between the bridge sections were removed and replaced. Also included was the replacement of approximately 3,000 linear feet of non-standard bridge rail and the installation of an all new Thrie-Beam guardrail. The roadway was widened, sections of storm pipe were replaced, guardrails installed, road paved, and signs and new striping were completed.

The project was finished safely, on schedule and under budget, even with the challenges presented with difficult traffic constraints, all while exceeding environmental over water constraints.
