The project involved the replacement of a 90-foot, two-span bridge carrying Five Mile Road (CR19) over Ischua Creek. The project objectives were to provide a replacement structure that meets current geometric, hydraulic, and load capacity standards, and to provide a cost-effective and structurally redundant structure.
The new structure is a 124-foot, single-span rigid frame steel multi-girder structure. The rigid frame structure type was selected to provide a single span configuration, as requested by the owner, while still maintaining the current grades due to the close proximity with both a railroad crossing and an intersection. The new structure also improves the hydraulic performance of the bridge.
