In November 2008 RLW was awarded the Blazer Highway Bridge over the Portneuf River. The bridge is about one mile north of Lava Hot Springs, Idaho. The project consists replacing an old wood bridge and reconstruction of about 900’ of roadway. The new bridge will be 80’ long and is a concrete bulb tee girder structure set on cast in place abutments. The project will be constructed in two phases using flagging operations and temporary traffic signals to allow both directions of traffic to run on one lane during construction. The project is bordered on all sides by wetlands.
