Project Details

This project involved rehabilitation of the existing two-span, steel non-composite I-Beam structure which was built in 1949 with a minor rehabilitation in 2012.

The bridge carries SR 0244 (Ellisburg Road) over Cryder Creek and has a total structure length of 106’-0” with the center to center bearing distance for both spans at 52’-0”. It consists of two 11’-0” travel lanes with 4’-0” shoulders.

Rehabilitation included:

  • Removing existing steel open grid deck and steel railings
  • Installing steel beam plate repairs at various locations
  • Painting steel repairs and spot painting superstructure
  • Installing new laminated neoprene bearing pads under each beam at abutments and pier
  • Placing new composite reinforced lightweight concrete deck and PA Type 10M barriers
  • Installing new lateral force resistance system and reinforced earth bridge approaches at each abutment
  • Performing concrete repairs on the bridge pier

In addition, SR 0244 saw minimal full depth approach roadway work with overlay sections. The approach roadway was raised approximately 1’ to accommodate the amended bridge deck height.


We have worked with Keller Engineers for structural and civil engineering support on six projects over the past five years and have been very pleased with the results. Our projects tend to be complicated phased renovation/ addition projects calling for creativity in planning and construction.  I have been particularity pleased with their responsiveness to issues that arise during construction which is of particular importance to us and our clients.
