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.


[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
