Pictured, workers are forming and tying rebar to concrete footings at the south abutment. Across the river, a dozen huge bolts, each more than four inches in diameter, have been set in the north anchorage, left of the crane on the temporary platform upstream of the old bridge. Those dozen bolts will hold the new bridge’s six cables to the block.

RIGGINS Progress continues to be made on the Manning Crevice Bridge replacement project, which began last year and is expected to continue into winter 2017.
Road and river users can anticipate clear traffic 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. this week, which is the typical schedule.
The typical schedule calls for 30 minute delays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., 30 minute delays 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and a nightly eight hour delay, 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. No night closures are expected the week of April 3.
Plans call for the road and river to be open during weekends, holidays and upcoming events including the Salmon River Jet Boat races (April 14-16) and the Riggins Rodeo (May 6-7).
