The federal government is providing a 1.1 million dollar grant for the replacement -- with a 10 percent local match.

 

Deschutes County Road Department Engineer George Kolb says the bridge needs to be replaced.

 

"This bridge is an old timber bridge, it has some concrete, but it can't handle large loads right now.  And we put in a temporary fix, but it's really gotten to the point it can't handle motor homes and things like that."

 

According to ODOT ratings, the brdige is in need of significant repair believing it has outlived most of its useful life.

 

The brdige is eligible for federal funds since the bridge passes through the Deschutes National Forest.

 

Construction on the bridge should start in 2015.
