Abstract: Under a joint research project between the Alaska Department of Highways and the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, cooperative field observations and tests were conducted during and following construction of the Goldstream Creek bridge, Fairbanks, Alaska. This report presents site investigations and bridge foundation design of the Alaska Department of Highways, bridge pile installation data, and ground temperature conditions for the six-month period following construction. Two test piles and three anchor piles were installed in proximity to the site and load settlement tests were performed. Observations of bridge performance will be continued for a three-year period after construction.
