Our New Project Hayden Bridge - Oregon
Back to Project:
Our latest project is the beautiful Hayden Bridge in Oregon. Renovations have begun to bring a piece of history back into the spotlight
The Hayden Bridge was assessed in 2015 for removal in an RFP from Weyerhaeuser Company. Workin' Bridges stepped in at that time to give them an option for preservation. Removing the bridge was very expensive and Weyerhaeuser did not accept any proposals. Later we approached them about purchasing the bridge. They went one step further and donated the 1.4 acres of the railroad bed on either side of the bridge and $25,000 for the planning for preservation. Currently we have completed our outreach and are working with local jurisdictions to figure out the best program for the bridge.
