The Silver Creek Bridge Installation Project is to install an IDFG/Owner supplied bridge across Silver Creek at the Silver Creek West Campground to increase sport/fly fishing (trout) access to this watershed while minimizing habitat degradation.  This project included extensive dewatering on both sides of Silver Creek for a period of two continuous weeks.  The bridge abutments were designed to accommodate the 100-Year Flood event.  The 70-foot single lane pedestrian bridge is a steel truss – K frame with a wooden deck.  The bridge was placed in one single lift (bridge weight 11,400 pounds).  The project was completed on an accelerated schedule before the winter season started.
