Link Road Bridge Replacement

Originally built in 1957, the existing Link Road Bridge is a one-span bridge, with a concrete deck, steel beams, and concrete abutments. It measures 54 feet in length with two 12 feet wide lanes and no sidewalk. The replacement bridge will be lengthened to approximately 87 feet long with two 15 feet wide lanes. There will also be a sidewalk added on the downstream side of the bridge. The construction of the replacement bridge will include a concrete deck, pre-stressed concrete bulb tee beams, semi-integral back walls, and concrete abutments on steel piles.
