Alderwood Dam Bridge
- LocationFort McCoy, Wisconsin
MethodsHeavy Civil Excavation Grading Matting
Michels removed the Alderwood Dam Bridge including the primary and secondary spillways, removal of organic muck lake bottom soils, and removal of the existing asphalt roadway. New construction consisted of installation of a pre-cast culvert bridge and associated roadway along with tank trail parallel to the new roadway and reconstruction, contouring and planting of new wetlands.
Despite multiple significant rainfall events in combination with the release of water from upstream cranberry bogs, Michels bypass and dewatering operations allowed pre-cast bridge delivery and installation to remain on schedule.
