The new and improved $2.5 million Admirals Pointe Bridge over Geist Reservoir is open and ready for business! The bridge replacement project, located over Geist Reservoir in Indianapolis, updated a high maintenance bridge with a more cost-efficient, two-span concrete structure which also improves boater access under the bridge while minimizing additional land acquisition needed to construct the project. The construction of the new three-lane bridge included drainage improvements, concrete railings, and a new sidewalk on the west side of the bridge. The project was completed under a seven-month closure and re-opened to traffic on June 25th.
United provided design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction inspection on Admirals Pointe Drive over Geist Reservoir. United’s design successfully maintained the existing road grade, decreased the number of spans from 12 spans at 26 feet to two spans at 107 feet, and improved boater access under the bridge — all while only requiring the purchase of an additional 0.002 acres of permanent right-of-way!
