SR 4002 over North Fork Beech Creek Bridge Rehabilitation
PennDOT District 2-0, Snow Shoe Township, Centre County, PA
Stahl Sheaffer completed the design for the rehabilitation of an existing bridge carrying SR 4002 over North Fork Beech Creek in Snow Shoe Township, Centre County, PA. This project included replacing the existing bridge superstructure/deck with new steel I-beams and an open grid steel deck. As part of the rehabilitation, the existing bridge railing was replaced with a structure mounted guide rail system. The existing abutments were reused and the proposed low chord and roadway elevations matched existing conditions. The total superstructure depth was designed to match the existing superstructure depth including bearings, beams, deck, and pavement.
This project was completed in just three months from start of design to finish of construction.
