200 feet north and south of the bridge
The superstructure consists of concrete deck on severely deteriorated steel beams with some loss of steel area. Presently, pedestrian traffic only is allowed on the first two beams on the west side of the bridge. The deterioration of the steel beam put the bridge in the structurally deficient category and as such is in need of rehabilitation.
Replacement of the existing superstructure in its entirety, including the concrete parapet, concrete deck and steel beams, with new concrete deck and steel beams. Construction will be completed in one stage under traffic detour. The structure is considered to be scour critical; therefore, scour countermeasure will be placed in the stream to protect the structure.
Design work completed in February 2012. Bids received and contract awarded in May 2012.
Construction work to begin in July 2012 and completed in September 2012.
