Bridge 5 – Strawberry Hill Road Over McMichaels Creek
Hamilton Township, Monroe County, Pa.
RKR designed a new bridge to replace a 66-foot span that was determined to be structurally deficient. During the preliminary design stage, we investigated superstructure alternative types and conducted a geotechnical investigation to determine the most suitable foundation. The final structural design of the bridge included engineering designs for the the beam, reinforced concrete deck, abutment and wingwall, riprap, and foundation. The bridge was designed in accordance with PennDOT DM4 (Structures), and satisfies current legal vehicular loading at operating levels. In addition, we prepared the construction plans and specifications, and performed construction administration and observation services.
