PennDOT District 9-0, Bedford County
This project replaced the structure carrying SR 31 over the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River. The existing structure, built in 1931, was a 97’-0”, two-span concrete t-beam bridge. This bridge replacement used a 110’-10.5” span P/S concrete PA bulb tee beam superstructure on concrete abutments. The overall project included 1,410’-0” of approach roadway improvements plus realignment of an intersection/township roadway and improvements to a PA Turnpike access road. A temporary bridge was used to maintain traffic during construction.
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
