US Forest Service - East River

U.S. Forest Service — East River, Quigley Creek and Rock Creek
Gothic, Colorado - Three existing structures over streams in the area of the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest were deteriorating and failure was imminent. Design of the new structures needed to halt the over-topping of the roads during sudden snow melt. As the solutions, the U.S. Forest Service chose Aluminum Box Culverts in the following locations and sizes: East River (20’-3” x 8’-5” x 32’-6”), Quigley Creek (10’ x 4’-10” x 28’) and Rock Creek (10’ x 4’-10” x 28’). These structures were selected for the open bottom design which allows for aquatic passage, ease of installation, the ability to accommodate a limited vertical height as well as low cost.
