Norfolk Southern Partial Bridge Removal

  • Location: Johnstown, PA
  • Owner: Norfolk Southern Railway Co.
  • General Contractor: Brayman Construction Corporation
  • Estimated Value: $346,650
  • Completion Date: April 2010

This project consisted of shoring an existing active rail that was to remain after bridge removal. Once the shoring was completed, the bridge was removed, which is an overpass bridge above State Route 56 in Johnstown, PA. After the deck was removed, the steel girder beams were removed at night during low-traffic conditions using a crane set up in the northbound lane of traffic. The beams were lifted and set onto flatbed trailers and taken to a recycling facility.
