Condemned in the fall of 2016, this bridge served as the only access to the popular boys and girls Pine Basin camp and a valuable access to many of the electrical systems running through the canyon serving Victor, Driggs and Swan Valley, Idaho.
The new bridge was designed with a span of 45-feet. Due to this span length not being conducive to standard precast slabs, Oldcastle Precast engineers partnered with VSL Structural Technologies to create a custom precast solution. Oldcastle Precast and VSL decided to install post tension cables in the slab during the precasting process.
After manufacturing the custom post tensioned bridge slabs, Oldcastle Precast Idaho Falls shipped them to the Pine Basin Bridge site. Once delivered and installed on the cast-in-place bridge abutments, Oldcastle Precast and VSL applied the post tensioning of the cables in the field for a fantastic forever bridge.
