This project involved the rehabilitation of Blair County Bridges 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. completed the rehabilitation project within an accelerated schedule that was set to minimize the bridge closing impact to the surrounding community and school bus traffic.
The project was undertaken to repair and extend the life of the three bridges. It 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.
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
