This project included the replacement of the existing structurally deficient single-span concrete encased T-beam bridge supported on reinforced concrete abutments and wingwalls. The bridge, located over Chest Creek in East Carroll/Clearfield Townships, was posted for a six-ton weight limit.
The new structure is a single span, prestressed spread box beam bridge having a total structure length of approximately 60’ and a clear span of approximately 55’. The new structure carries two-way traffic and has a 22’ curb-to-curb width.
Additional improvements included placement of rock protection along both footings of the proposed structure and 400’ of approach roadway work with new guide rail on the approaches to the bridge.
[The] entire staff did a wonderful job! We truly appreciate all the hard work in making our bridge project a success and something we can be very proud to have in our township. Bev Sherwood Burns, Supervisor Blacklick Township
