This Economic Recovery Project called for the rehabilitation of the Tri-Boro Bridge, spanning Turtle Creek, Norfolk Southern and Union Railroads, with 11-spans of the multi-steel girder structure.

Various work activities included:

  • Complete substructure removal and replacement of concrete piers 6-10, including the extraction of existing and installation of new steel bearing pile

  • De-erection and re-erection of 5 spans of structural steel plate girders

  • Jacking and temporary supporting of 4 other spans to replace and repair existing pier caps and bridge bearings

  • New concrete bridge deck with associated parapets and railing 6' in width and 1300lf in length

  • Reconstruction of the bridge approach roadway

The challenge of this project was the coordination with Union Railroad to maintain service to the US Steel Plant situated on one end of the bridge.
