This project involved replacement of the existing bridge carrying Old Mill Road over North Spring Creek. Improvements consisted of replacing the existing structurally deficient single lane bridge with a new single lane P/S Concrete Spread Box Beam structure. With minor profile adjustments, the new structure was constructed on the existing horizontal roadway alignment. Drainage work, including new inlets, was included to better control drainage adjacent to the historic Hudson Grist Mill property.
Safety improvements were made to the approach roadway and at the intersection of SR 0655 where site distance was a challenge. This project also required improvements that met design criteria to fit into the community context while limiting impacts to the historic mill, the East Broad Top Railroad (a National Historic Landmark) right-of-way, and area wetlands. The mill race drainage structure was required to be extended to accommodate the widened roadway near the mill and a new reinforced concrete headwall was constructed and faced with the masonry stonework from the original headwall.
I probably don’t say this enough, but we so appreciate the quality of work Keller Engineers does. The fact that they include building footprints and natural features makes these surveys super useful. I’m reminding my colleagues in other counties that their surveyors need to up their quality. F. Mark Schiavone, Executive Director Berkeley County Farmland Protection Board
