Gibson County Bridge No. 398

Gibson County Commissioners

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
