Project Description: Construction of a Pre-stressed I-Beam bridge on a new alignment to bypass the existing historic steel truss bridge and the rehabilitation of the historic truss for pedestrian use.
This bridge replacement/bypass project required the completion of a Categorical Exclusion / Programmatic Section 4 (f). This type of environmental documentation was required due to the project’s impact on a bridge identified as eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. As a result, the project required exhaustive coordination with Section 106 Consulting Agencies in an effort to satisfy historic concerns. Stipulations remediating the project’s effect on the bridge were documented in a Memorandum of Agreement.
Approximate Project Cost: $2,500,000
Breadth of Services Provided: Survey, Historic, Environmental Services, Reforestation, Bridge Design, Right-of-Way Engineering, Regulatory Permits, and Construction Inspection
