ARIZONA--ROOSEVELT LAKE BRIDGE. ADMINISTRATIVE SUBCOMMITTEE ON BRIDGES AND STRUCTURES OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE ON ADMINISTRATION
The dam along the Roosevelt Lake was built years ago when horse teams were the main transportation mode. Today, this area has become a major recreational site for boaters and campers and its terrain and the integrity of the structure and foundation have come under scrutiny not because of traffic congestion, but to provide flood protection. As a result, the Bureau of Reclamation has called for the raising of the Roosevelt Dam 77 feet and the relocation of SR 188 in Arizona. Alternative bids were sought and the geologic conditions and their handling, dam raising materials and procedures are given. Construction began in December 1987 and erection is scheduled for completion in late 1989 with the bridge opening date slated for mid-1990.
