SINGLE-SPAN TIMBER STRINGER BRIDGE AVAILABLE FOR
ADOPTION
STARK/DUNN COUNTY, ND
Stark and Dunn Counties, in cooperation with the North Dakota Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration, is planning the replacement of Bridge No. 45-126-02.2. The bridge is a single-span timber stringer bridge that was constructed in 1968. It is approximately 33 feet long and 24 feet wide and spans Russian Spring Creek. The bridge is located along 30th Street approximately four miles east and six miles north of Dickinson, North Dakota.
The State Historic Preservation Office has recommended the bridge as eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. This means that prior to construction of a structure at this site, the County must make the bridge available to any responsible state, local or private agency willing to take over, relocate and preserve this bridge at a new location.
Any organization willing to "adopt" the old bridge would have to agree to maintain the bridge and assume all future legal and financial responsibility. This existing structure is in use now and would need to be relocated after construction of a new structure, which is scheduled to occur during the 2021 construction season.
Any interested groups should respond by February 28, 2021 to Brandy Presnell, Project Manager; Northern Plains Engineering; (701)-483-1858; blpresnell@nplainseng.com; 441 23rd St West; Dickinson, ND 58601-6434.
