Silver Bow Construction Project Manager Larry Gamez says a temporary pedestrian bridge will be open from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily. Access to Perseverance Trail will be via the Flume Trail.
During the next two months, “Silver Bow Construction will be replacing the structural timbers on the underside of the trestle bridge; also replacing the bridge decking, railings, on top of the bridge,” Gamez says.
The project started in October 2011. Gamez says it is 75 percent complete. About mid-April, workers took a break to accommodate the tourist season. Basin Road is access to Last Chance Basin, the mining museum, and popular hiking trails.
The original Basin Road Bridge was built in 1936 when the AJ Mine was in operation. It has been rebuilt a number of times since.
This reconstruction is estimated to cost just over one and a quarter million dollars and is paid for by federal funds.
