|RATTLESNAKE BRIDGE TIMETABLE|
PROGRESS ON RATTLESNAKE 7-27-15 LMS
Road and Bridge Supervisor Kerrie Cheney reports the company selected to build the Rattlesnake Bridge, located approximately 16 miles south of Salmon on Highway 93 South, is hoping to start actual construction work sometime in mid-September.
RSCI is a General Contracting-Construction Management-Design/Build company headquartered in Boise and was awarded the bridge project on its bid of $1,943,700.
During the July 27 meeting of the Lemhi County Commissioners, Cheney told the board that a preliminary meeting has been held. He said the survey and geo tech work should begin by the end of August. The required National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) study is expected to be ready around the first of September.
The deteriorating 100 year old Rattlesnake Bridge was officially closed by the state and the county in mid-July of 2014. The bridge provides access to property owners on the west side of the Salmon River as well as to the Twin Peaks Ranch and beyond.
It was also announced that construction of the long awaited Allen Bridge has been postponed until next year. Cheney said all the entities involved hope to have that project completed before the start of next year’s school year.
