About This Kool Project

The Hayden Bridge was assessed in 2015 for removal in an RFP from Weyerhaeuser Company. Workin' Bridges stepped in at that time to give them an option for preservation. Removing the bridge was very expensive and Weyerhaeuser did not accept any proposals. Later we approached them about purchasing the bridge. They went one step further and donated the 1.4 acres of the railroad bed on either side of the bridge and $25,000 for the planning for preservation. Currently we have completed our outreach and are working with local jurisdictions to figure out the best program for the bridge.

From Diane Roth, President NSRGA / Workin' Bridges

After our fact finding trip to Springfield and Eugene we found that people are excited to hear the bridges history and many had no idea of its’ historic significance. They are also pleased that there will be new growth in that section of the county. Ideas included a Sunday farmers market, food trucks, trail connections and our baby; the Historic Bridge Destination Park. Comments included:

 
“I knew something was going on” with the work already done clearing trees, “I never knew” about the history, “That’s cool; we would love to see that place cleaned up”, “I drive by it every day”. There are many groups of people that have shown an interest in this project and have the ‘wherewithal” to see the
project through to completion. Now as we move forward, we will coordinate fundraising efforts, spread the word, restore and open the Hayden Bridge to the public.
