Project Limits:

Approximately 420 feet east and west of the bridge.

Project Need:

This bridge was constructed in 2011 over the CSX railroad. The required vertical clearance is 21'-6"; however the bridge was 5" short of the required clearance from top of rail to bottom of beam.

The project involved strengthening end diaphragms for jacking, jacking the bridge, reconstructing beam pedestals and bearings, reconstructing the backwalls, reinstalling joint seals, and reconstructing the approaches to meet the raised bridge elevation.
