STEENS MOUNTAIN LOOP ROAD RECONSTRUCTION

Contract Type:  Federal; Bureau of Land Management

Location: Steens Mountain, Southeastern OR

Description of Work:  The 52-mile Steens Mountain Loop Road traverses the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Area, located in Harney County, approximately 60 miles south of Burns, Oregon near Frenchglen, Oregon.

This area was designated by Congress in 2000 through legislation known as the Steens Act and boasts over 150,000 recreationists annually.  Through the Andrews/Steens Resource Management Plan/Record of Decision, 2004, the Steens Mountain Loop Road was identified as an important recreation use road.  Annual road maintenance was limited to a single pass grading effort due to insufficient annual maintenance funds. As a result, the road bed had become severely washboarded and had lost its shape and ability to shed water.  The running surface was depleted, leaving exposed base rock, creating hazardous driving conditions. Additionally, the road drainage system was substandard creating erosion and sedimentation along much of the alignment.

Robinson and Owen began this project in 2010 and is completing the 52 mile road reconstruction project in the Summer of 2012.

 

LAKECREEK FISH PASSAGE AND SCREENING PROJECT – CAMP SHERMAN, OREGON

This project is located on private land along the South Fork of Lake Creek within the Metolius Meadows Property Owners Association near Camp Sherman.  The project consisted of retrofitting two irrigation diversions on Lake Creek to provide fish screening and improve fish passage.  Robinson and Owen on-site work included dewatering the project site, retrofitting two diversions with fish screens, removing two foot high push-up dam, constructing an engineered riffle at old push-up dam site and restoring site with native vegetation.  Off site work included mobilizing equipment, transporting dewatering materials, loading and hauling rock cobble through private property while keeping the impact of the construction to a minimum.

 

WHYCHUS CREEK FISH PASSAGE AND SCREENING PROJECT – SISTERS, OREGON

Project is located on private land upstream of Sisters, Oregon.  Robinson and Owen on-site work consisted of dewatering the project by redirecting flow of Whychus Creek away from construction areas and installing two temporary 30-inch culverts to allow truck access to far bank to build 200 foot ramp to improve fish passage over existing concrete structure.  The culverts were removed and the stream banks were rehabbed with native vegetation.  A rock weir was constructed to direct more flow over new ramp to improve fish passage and an engineered log structure was constructed to prevent further bank erosion.

 

TIMBER PINE DRIVE STREAM BANK RESTORATION – SISTERS, OREGON

Robinson and Owen performed stream bank restoration work most of which had to be performed within the stream bed.  R&O diverted flow from the stream bank to be stabilized to another area within the stream bed so work could be performed.  The diversion consisted of a temporary diversion dam which was removed at the end of the project.  The dam itself was made of logs, rocks, and plastic sheeting.  The stream bank restoration consisted of digging down below the scour depth and placing large anchor boulders on top of large pine trees placed at the toe of the bank.  This served as the footing for multiple layers of anchor boulders, pine trees, filled in with river ran gravels and cobbles.  Root wads were set deep into the bank with boulders placed on top to anchor them down.  Trees were placed in such a manner as to recreate a ‘log jam’ which roughens the stream bank thus slowing the velocity of water passing through.  The slowing of water reduces erosion forces and creates habitat for fish.  The stream bank was planted with willows and grasses in order to further stabilize the soils.
