holmes-larabee bridge



The County plans to replace the low-water crossing with a full-height, full-service bridge that allows residents, emergency vehicles, and resource equipment year-round access across the Eel River. To design this modern, safe bridge, the County has enlisted the help of Consor.


Once completed, the Holmes-Larabee Bridge Replacement Project will reduce travel time by 45 minutes and allow users to avoid travel on a steep, narrow gravel logging road across private property that is prone to landslides. 

Check out video simulations of driving over the proposed bridge and renderings of the proposed project:

Project Status

Over the next several years, the County and Consor team will work together to design and construct the new bridge, which also involves obtaining environmental clearance and a variety of regulatory agency permits.

The Environmental Document and technical studies are in progress. Use the link below to view the Environmental Study Limits.
