Timber Walking Bridge Over Big Meadow Creek

Help CNR and Engineering students work together with state agencies to design and build a timber recreation bridge over Big Meadow Creek on the UI Experimental Forest (UIEF) in Troy. This project will improve habitat for steelhead and will provide a real-world design, construction and restoration project for students. It will improve safe access to several miles of hiking, biking and cross-country skiing upstream, including new trails being built in 2020 and 2021. The bridge is being designed by students in the CE 494 Senior Design Project and Timber Design classes and will feature innovative use of Idaho timber using wood harvested on the UIEF by students in the forestry program. Big Meadow Road washed out during a flood in the early 2000s. We need to remove the old culverts and stabilize the banks when installing the bridge, building on long term efforts by Idaho Fish and Game, the City of Troy, and private landowners in the area. You can learn more about prior restoration work by IDFG immediately downstream in this video. Now it's time to do our part. Help us build the bridge!
