Wild Goose Bridge to be Re-installed

Wild Goose Bridge sits elevated on blocks over the V-line canal.

Churchill County Commissioners approved a bid this morning from King Construction of Fernley to reinstall the Wild Goose Bridge on Pioneer Way below Diversion Dam.

The bridge has been unused since the county road department raised it by several feet during the 2017 flooding to allow water to pass more freely through the V-line canal.

In the two years since the flooding, the county has gone through the application process for reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for much of the work done to mitigate the flooding throughout the county. A portion of the FEMA money received has been set aside to reinstall the Wild Goose Bridge at the raised level over the canal.

The road department put out a bid for the work to be done to reinstall the bridge and King Construction  came in as the low bid at $493,030.

The bridge work will be completed by March, when water starts flowing through Diversion Dam and into the canals for the 2020 irrigation season.
