No more "Mount Brushmore"

Lane County is cleaning up debris from January’s “Iceathon”

WALTERVILLE: Heavy equipment has been busy at the Hendricks Bridge Wayside east of Springfield is closed this week, removing tons of debris from last January’s ice storm.

The park was used as a drop site for debris collected by residents as well as debris removed from roadways by Lane County Public Works. The large piles, primarily tree limbs, earned the unofficial nickname of “Mt. Brushmore” due to their height.

“We are appreciative that our friends in the Parks division were able to make this site available to us for storm clean up and now we’re glad to be returning it to its regular use in time for summer,” said Lane County Road Maintenance Manager Orin Schumacher.
