Good River Road Bridge Project: Glacier Bay Construction is the low bidder for the project to replace two failing culverts where the Mountain View Drainage stream (AKA Harry Hall Creek) crosses under Good River Road. The bid amount was $210,130. (Other bidders were Admiralty Construction and Channel Construction, both of Juneau.) The utility relocations will be handled by the City directly with the phone and electric utilities. The culverts will be replaced with a timber bridge similar to that on Spruce Lane, but with timber guard rails. Design funding was provided by the US Fish and Wildlife Service Juneau Office and design work was completed by DOWL HKM of Anchorage. Construction funding is from two Legislative CIP grants totaling $225,500. Construction is expected to be in early summer, 2015.
Tong Road Bridge Project: Glacier Bay Construction is the apparent low bidder to replace the undersized culvert at Tong Road with a timber bridge similar to that at Spruce Lane. The bid amount was $123,510. Design work, funded by US FWS, was completed by Dowl HKM. Construction funding will be provided by a grant from the Alaska Sustainable Salmon Fund, administered by ADF&G.
