Lenore Bridge Feasibility Study (39MB PDF) 

March 2023, KEY NO. 22891

This Bridge Replacement Feasibility Study was commissioned to analyze replacement alternatives of the existing Lenore Bridge crossing over the Clearwater River in Nez Perce County near the community of Lenore. This Feasibility Study documents three possible bridge replacement alternative alignments along with various possible structure replacement types, their respective estimated costs. These costs estimates will be used to seek funding for a future bridge replacement project.

This Study also includes an environmental scan and anticipated permit requirements. So that the anticipated scope of work for the future National Environmental Policy Act can be identified.
