Kramer Gehlen & Associates was commissioned by Weekly Bros. to engineer/design lifting beam and jacking components to lift an entire flume section. With these components in place, support beams could be safely removed and replaced. Given the very difficult task of changing some of the aging wood members on a very high trestle, it came with some very difficult challenges. The engineered lifting system was a substantial accomplishment. It will be used in the future on upcoming wood member replacements on other trestles by both Weekly Bros. & the Power Company. What makes this project even more extraordinary is that it was completed in the middle of Umpqua National Forest near Crescent Lake.
