PennDOT District 9-0, Bedford County
This project involved replacing the structure carrying SR 31 over the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River, near the intersection of Diehl Road (T-402). Built in 1931, the existing structure was an 87’, two-span concrete t-beam bridge. The replacement bridge used an 86’-10” span P/S concrete PA bulb tee beam superstructure on concrete abutments. The overall project included 1,715’-0” of approach roadway improvements including straightening of the alignment to eliminate existing sight distance challenges. Staged, partial width construction was utilized allowing improved alignment for this project.
For over 20 years I have had the privilege of working with Keller Engineers and their staff of surveyors, and civil and structural engineers on over $150 million worth of work. During these project relationships and partnering opportunities, my architectural teams have received nothing but premium professional services and courtesy towards my own staff, clients and prospective clients with stellar attention given to building and site details, client responsiveness and peer respect. I look forward to many more teaming opportunities and urge any other architectural firms, municipalities or clients who have not worked with Keller Engineers to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised! Richard L. Karcher, AIA, NCARB
