Article 15 Title 27 Wild, Scenic, & Recreational Rivers
Project is Located: Indian Lake, Hamilton County
Project Description:

The Department proposes to construct a multiple-use recreational bridge over the Cedar River at a location northwest of the Hamlet of Indian Lake. The Cedar River is designated as a Recreational River at this location. The bridge will be constructed using two laminated wood girders and will be 103 feet in length with an 8 foot wide wooden deck. The bridge will rest on shoreline abutments consisting of either rock-filled timber cribs or poured-in-place reinforced concrete structures. If the concrete abutment alternative is selected, exposed surfaces will be faced with wooden planks. The bridge will be of sufficient height above the river so as not to interfere with navigation. The purpose of the project is to provide a safe means of crossing the river for snowmobilers and other recreational users of the existing snowmobile trail in this area. The bridge is part of an overall project to improve and relocate sections of the snowmobile trail as described in an approved Unit Management Plan (UMP) for this area.
