North 8th Street BridgeOwner: Blair County Project Description:
This project in involved the rehabilitation of Blair County Bridges Numbers 1, 2, and 3 located in the City of Altoona and Logan Township. The bridges are the main route between 4th Avenue in the Juniata Section of Altoona and Route 764 in Logan Township.
Keller Engineers, Inc., and contractor Francis J. Palo, Inc. completed the rehabilitation project within an accelerated schedule that was set in order to minimize the impact of the bridge closing to the surrounding community and school bus traffic.
The project was undertaken to repair and extend the life of the three bridges. The project included replacement of the existing bituminous deck wearing surfaces with new reinforced concrete decks, repair of the concrete bridge barriers, repair of the existing prestressed concrete bridge beams, and associated guiderail and roadway approach work.Project Photos: (click on thumbnails to view larger images)
