The project consists of dismantling the existing timber stringer trestly ballast deck bridge and replacing it. All components of the existing bridge would be removed. A total of six piers/bents ~96.18 ft in length would be driven 30 ft apart spanning the length of the structure. Seven 30 ft spans of PCB bridge would be placed on the driven piers/bents to create the bridge deck. Preparation of the berms supporting each end of the bridge would include cutting 40 cubic yards of existing riprap and fill, placing a backwall on each end, and adding fill and riprap to create an 18 inch thick layer of riprap. The pre-stressed concrete box girder bridge would be built on site and all associated construction staging would take place in upland areas within the existing UPRR right of way.
