Well they have had time to do a lot of prep work on the project due to one person who was a thorn in their side.

any idea on how long repair is expected to take once work begins?

3 years. Work is supposed to shut down October-March each year.  I don't know if this would be changed by mild weather. I suppose it's also possible that since the low bid came in  under engineer's estimate that the work would also take fewer days than projected.

Wow. 3 years to do four-tenths of a mile. Mind boggling.

Year and a half, three six month seasons, 400 work days and change.  But I thought the same thing until I went through the bid package.

It's a pretty involved job on a steep narrow ROW: Lots of structural fill, gabions maybe, a 180 foot bridge at the upstream end, construction and removal of temporary roads for access, restricted in-channel work to remove old roadbed materials, Marbled Murrelet partial shutdown if I remember right, lots of import coming a long ways in legal loads...all kinds of ways to suck up time.

The low bid, if accepted, only left about 200K on the table; they should be pretty happy right now.

What I find boggling is the seventeen years that will have elapsed since date fo the flood when it is finally reopened.  It's a fair bet that the price of repairs doubled or tripled in that time span.

Still can't recall who said they could do it faster by themselves and a shovel? I think they may have been correct.

I would like to see Danny McCaskill come and trial the culvert and concrete area of the sky before they clean it up. I've 'hiked the washout more times then I can count. Kind of fun linking concrete barriers..

Thanks! I try.. and I could not find those last 3 trees. But would you count this or 1 or 2, 3? I think 2399 is behind, in the middle. There where other multi trunke trees that got counted as more then 1.

Ah, you're speaking Middle English. Interesting choice.
