DECADES OF PURPOSEFUL PROJECTS

Maple Avenue Bridge is a 70 foot tall and 780 foot long concrete bridge located in Redmond Oregon. It was constructed in 2007 with three 210 foot arch spans.

The bridge spans over the Dry Canyon which runs the length of Redmond. The Deschutes River was located here many years ago, but shifted channels to the west. The floor of the canyon is dirt, grass, sagebrush and junipers with a paved pedestrian and bicycle path. 

In 2015, the first climbing demonstration route was installed.  The climber community plans to eventually post eight routes on the different arches of the bridge. The walls will have handholds and footholds with hooks bolted into the concrete of the bridge for climbers to harness into.

The Maple Avenue Bridge provides a direct route across the canyon for residents and visitors year round.

Povey & Associates has surveyed high desert lands for private owners, municipalities, government entities and developers.  The high desert region of Central Oregon is known for its extensive flora and fauna and is home to rockchucks, coyotes and deer.

Povey & Associates has worked on a number of airport projects throughout the years to upgrade and maintain runways.  

 

The most recent project is on Runway 5-23 at the Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) located in the heart of Central Oregon. RDM is currently served by four air carriers;  Alaska Air, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, and United/United Express.

 

The 2016 project modifies and upgrades the Airport’s primary runway by re-engineering the pavement cross section to improve drainage and prevent water accumulation from the runway surfaces.  A project of this caliber typically occurs every 20 – 30 years.

 

RDM offers 15 daily commercial flights, affordable parking rates and short lines; visitors and residents can easily experience the convenience of traveling in and out of Redmond’s state-of-the-art terminal. 

 

The Airport is home to the USDA Forest Service Redmond Air Center, Life Flight, Butler Aircraft Services, Les Schwab, Bonneville Power, and Henderson Aviation.

One of Oregons 7 Wonders, Smith Rock has deep river canyons, miles of hiking, riding and biking trails, rock climbing and slacklining.  There are several thousand climbs in the park. More than a thousand are bolted routes. Smith Rock is home to golden eagles, prairie falcons, mule deer, river otters and beavers.

The park covers over 650 acres and sits at approximately 3,000 feet in elevation.The major rock faces are welded tuff, or compressed volcanic ash.  Massive walls and spires up to 550 feet.

The picnic and campground areas sit on top of the rimrock, which is made up of columnar basalt.

Between 1960 and 1975 a combination of purchases and gifts of land finally formed the park as we know it today. Put on the map by the rock climbing community, it now attracts over 600,000 visitors a year from around the world.

 

The 70-year-old Newport Avenue Bridge in Bend Oregon was replaced in 2006 in a project that lasted approximately 6 months.

 

The new span is roughly 20 feet longer and 20 feet wider than the previous bridge, with sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides.

 

The project cost roughly $5.9 million, most of which was paid for by a grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation. 

 

The bicycle and pedestrian-friendly Newport Bridge forms a central and vital link within its River West Neighborhood.  

At an estimated cost of $18.3 million, Reed Market Road is easily the largest and most complex project in the Bend City Infrastructure Project program.  

The entire corridor from Third St. to 27th St. was re-designed and upgraded to two travel lanes with left turn lanes, shoulder/bike lanes and sidewalks separated by a landscaped stormwater swale.

Major intersections, such as 15th Street, and the Burlington Northern railroad crossing were improved for better traffic flow.

Additionally, the American Lane Bridge over the canal that connects Reed Market with the American Lane Industrial area was rebuilt west of the current location to provide more separation from the railroad tracks.

The North Unit Irrigation District is located in the Deschutes River Basin and supplies irrigation water to nearly 59,000 acres of farmland in Jefferson County.

 

Early homesteaders to Jefferson County ranched and practiced dry-land farming techniques, with wheat becoming the dominant agriculture commodity in the area by the early 1900s.

 

Despite being one of the most successful dry-farming areas in Central Oregon, local farmers began to experience a moisture shortage after 1925. Hit hard by the dry-spell, coupled with the arrival of the Great Depression, many dry-land farmers left.

 

Those that remained realized that to exist, they needed a reliable source of water.

Construction on the North Unit Project began on July 21, 1938, but was stalled due to the arrival of World War II. With the completion of the North Unit canal in 1946, water was delivered to 17,000 acres during 1946 and 1947. By the spring of 1949, all 50,000 acres were receiving water.

North Unit was the largest of the Deschutes projects in Central Oregon. Created by the Bureau of Reclamation, the irrigation project was operated by the agency until 1955, when the North Unit Irrigation District took over.

Often, government and private lands may share the same boundary lines.

This surveying project was initiated to definitively determine the boundaries for land owned by the government adjacent to land being purchased by a private party.

Povey & Associates was able to provide both parties with accurate and timely surveying solutions in order for the land sale to continue with properly determined boundaries.

REDMOND MUNICIPAL AIRPORT

Povey & Associates has worked on a number of airport projects throughout the years to upgrade and maintain runways.  

The most recent project is on Runway 5-23 at the Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) located in the heart of Central Oregon. RDM is currently served by four air carriers;  Alaska Air, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, and United/United Express.

Built in the 1920s, passenger flights arrived at the airport in 1940. During World War II the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Forces as a bomber base. After the war the federal government sold the airport to the city for $1.

A passenger terminal was built in 1950 and replaced in 1981 by a 6,000-square-foot terminal. In 1992-93 the terminal was expanded to 23,000 square feet.

By late 2009 Roberts Field completed another large terminal expansion, designed by HNTB.

The Airport is home to the USDA Forest Service Redmond Air Center, Life Flight, Butler Aircraft Services, Les Schwab, Bonneville Power, and Henderson Aviation.

Along with increased parking, the facility has increased its area by about 600%, allowing more room for security and traveler services, as well as concessions and gate operations.  

In October 2009, most sections of the expanded passenger terminal opened for public use; the improvements included more numerous check-in counters and bathrooms, along with a two story, windowed departure lounge. Travelers also may now use covered walkways between aircraft and terminal.

A year after the expansion’s completion, a bar and restaurant was opened in the secure area after a contentious permitting process; efforts to add pizza and coffee outlets to the non-secure area are now underway.

While there was a restaurant in the check-in hall until 2009, this is the first time in Roberts Field’s history that food and drink are available in the departure gate area. If initial OLCC approval is continued, it will also become the second location in Oregon allowed to serve alcohol beginning at 5 am, following Portland’s airport.

Since the airport began displaying public art in the terminal, it has sold nearly $100,000 worth of artworks to travelers.

 

 

The airport upgraded its mass-casualty vehicle in 2011 due to larger commercial jets using Roberts Field. While the old unit could handle 37 patients, the new truck is prepared for an incident involving over 100. 

In early 2012, the airport began hosting a MEDEVAC helicopter operated by Lifeflight. In May 2016 the airport runways were closed for nearly three weeks, allowing their intersection to be reconstructed as part of a project to re-pave them both. 

 

 

The 2016 project modifies and upgrades the Airport’s primary runway by re-engineering the pavement cross section to improve drainage and prevent water accumulation from the runway surfaces.  A project of this caliber typically occurs every 20 – 30 years.

RDM offers daily commercial flights, affordable parking rates and short lines; visitors and residents can easily experience the convenience of traveling in and out of Redmond’s state-of-the-art terminal.  New travel routes are being added regularly.  

Redmond Municipal Airport contributes many conveniences and cost savings to Central Oregon residents, visitors and businesses and expects to continue being an integral part of The Hub of the City of Redmond.
