SUM-21-(5.69)(7.58)(7.78) State Bridge Rehabilitation and Replacement Project involved engineering, surveying and right-of-way design services for improving 725’ of Stimson Road including rehabilitating a four span steel beam bridge over S.R.21. The continuous steel beams were raised, cleaned, repainted and made composite with the new concrete deck. Pier caps were raised and footings were widened. Abutments were made semi-integral.
The project also included plans for the improvement of 600’ of S.R.21 including the rehabilitation of twin three-span steel beam bridges over the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad. Our design work involved widening the existing deck by adding a new beam line; extending the abutments and making them semi-integral; and extending the piers with drilled shafts. The steel beams were cleaned, painted and made composite with the new deck. Maintenance of traffic included median crossovers, ramp closures, detours and widening of the existing pavement.
Finally, the project involved improvement of 1,100’ of S.R.21 including the replacement of existing twin, three-span steel beam bridges over S.R.162 (Copley Road). Our design work involved the design of new 82’ single span composite steel beam bridges on semi-integral abutments with spread footings supported by mechanically-stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls. The single span was chosen to improve intersection sight distance by removing existing piers. Maintenance of traffic included median crossovers, widening of the existing pavement, detouring traffic for existing entrance and exit ramps and short-term detours of S.R.162. Right-of-way plans included 6 takes from 4 owners and a railroad plat. Estimated construction cost was $6.3 million.
