Project Description: Madison County Bridge No. 123 carries CR 600 West over the White River in Madison County. The structure is a four-span, continuous variable depth concrete girder with simple span concrete end-spans. The rehabilitation project included a complete deck replacement and reconstruction of the end-spans with prestressed concrete I-beams making them continuous with the existing historic concrete girders.
United developed a design and construction method for this structure that allowed for the deck replacement without any temporary supports for the historic girders. The negative moment reinforcement in the deck was maintained over the girders and the new deck constructed above this reinforcement using a staged pour sequence to reduce construction loading. The design also eliminated two expansion joints by making the approach spans continuous with the main span. This eliminated on-going maintenance concerns for the County and significantly extended the useful service life of this structure. These unique design concepts saved the county in both construction cost and schedule.
Approximate Construction Cost: $1,200,000
