Animas LaPlata Dam

Animas LaPlata Dam
Denver, CO
August 2005
About the project
Preparation for the new Animas LaPlata Dam outside of Durango, Colorado, required erecting scaffold up the face of the mountain. Safway installed a wooden walkway along the steep mountain slope that provided access to the face of the mountain to keep workers in a safe, controlled area to carry equipment to the site. The scaffold followed the contour of the mountain to a 70 foot height. Decks were erected every seven feet, and stairs were installed for top or bottom entry. Jacks were anchored using rods and epoxy to assist in stabilizing the base of the scaffold The dam is approximately 200 feet high.
