Nichols Rd. Over Ruck Run Bridge 2

Challenge: Due to deteriorating fascia beams, traffic on the bridge was reduced to one lane, and the bridge was load posted.

Solution: The Cherry Township supervisors retained our bridge professionals to replace the bridge. This project included the preliminary and final design of the replacement structure and construction administration and observation of the replacement structure.

Outcome: Our design included a structure with a single cell, cast-in-place rigid frame and cast-in-place wingwalls founded on bedrock. Our design also included widening the approach roadway to 16’ with improvements to the existing parallel ditches and the installation of a guide rail.
