Wire Rope Replacement Project
Hood River – White Salmon Interstate Bridge
The Port ofHood River is requesting bids to replace the wire ropes of the lift span of the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge (“Bridge”). The Bridge includes a through truss vertical lift span. The lift span and associated counterweights are supported by a total of 16 wire ropes (counterweight ropes) with four wire ropes at each corner of the lift span. The wire ropes extend from the lift span terminations, above the roadway, up and over sheaves located at the top of the two lift span towers and terminate at the counterweights.
This project includes the removal, procurement of new components, and replacement of all 16 wire ropes and associated rope clamps, keeper plates, shims, and pins with all work being done during closures to both highway and marine traffic. The work involves closing the roadway (by the Port of Hood River), jacking the counterweights to allow for wire rope removal, removal and proper disposal of the existing wire ropes, replacing the wire ropes with new wire ropes and associated terminations, and tensioning the wire ropes. All work is to be conducted per the requirements of the contract documents.
