The recent events pertaining to the Yellowstone flooding have left all of us heartbroken. The devastating flooding that took place last month is the result of an extreme onset of spring rains combined with melting snow rushing down the Montana mountains. Our hearts shatter as we witness the flooding wipe away livelihoods, roadways, and bridges.
As the disaster continues to take its toll on the area, it’s impossible to fathom the devastation from afar. We simply cannot sit and watch, knowing well we can help. We are ready at a moment’s notice. Our speed and reliability speak for themselves, but our personal compassion compels us to offer our services to help mend the area.
The Flooding of Yellowstone
In June 2022, Yellowstone closed its doors and evacuated more than 10,000 visitors. Floods, washed-out roads, crumbling bridges, and large boulders falling on roadways occurred within the northwest of Wyoming, southwest Montana, and eastern Idaho.
The flooding of Yellowstone was something “rarely or never seen before across many area rivers and streams,” according to the National Weather Service. Tropical moisture poured down on the Pacific Northwest before dumping several inches of rain on northern Wyoming and southern Montana. This mixed with a warm spell that sped up the melting of a hefty snowpack leading to the catastrophic flooding.
Though the Yellowstone flooding has left us speechless, we are ready to provide what we can to bring Yellowstone and the surrounding area back to its natural, beautiful self. This wouldn’t be anything new for U.S. Bridge, as back in 2020 a pair of tropical storms decimated a town in Guatemala leaving a trail of destruction.
We were then chosen to supply the community with our reliable Liberty Bridge to replace the one that was destroyed during the storm. And we’re proud of the speed and recovery of those results.
Designed for Quick Assembly and Durability
Our Liberty Bridge sports a truss-style design and is extremely versatile. This sturdy bridge is fast and durable, making it perfect for emergency installation and also as a permanent structure. Designed with only the highest quality of materials, the Liberty Bridge is able to withstand the test of time. Not to mention, it also offers a beautiful aesthetic with its use of prefabricated panels and modular design. So, it’s no surprise that this bridge is often incorporated in many emergency situations.
Back in 2018, Hurricane Maria destroyed much of Puerto Rico, prompting us to supply a total of five separate Liberty Bridges to the territory. This opportunity to restitch the island took a quick six weeks to complete. Our quick turnaround to provide a bridge to any population in need gives those who live in the area the peace of mind that normality will return sooner than later.
