The new structure is a 73.5m single lane continuous span bridge consisting of two lines of steel plate girders supporting precast concrete deck panels, Foundations consist of driven 20” diameter steel pipe piles at the abutments (4 piles/abutment) and drilled 20” pipe piles at the two pier locations(10 piles/pier). The scope of work also included construction of approximately 300m of approach roadway.
