Stavis Bay Road (CRP 3640)
The Stavis Bay Road Bridge crossing Stavis Creek is a treated wood
structure built in 1952. Annual inspections have found several bridge
components to be in a deteriorated condition and replacement is deemed
The new bridge will have the same alignment as the existing and be
constructed of single span pre-stressed voided concrete slabs. The width
will be the same as the existing bridge (27-feet) and the length will be
increased 150% to 67 feet. The new bridge will improve stream functions
by allowing a more natural flow path for Stavis Creek.
The bridge will be constructed in stages maintaining one 11-foot wide lane of traffic
through the work zone. Temporary road closures will be allowed but are
limited to a 30 minute duration.
