Bridge Improvements

Spring Meadows Drive Bridge Replacement

This project replaced the substandard bridge over the Grand Glaize Creek on Spring Meadows Drive.  The cost of this project was offset by an 80% federal highway transportation fund reimbursement.  The new bridge accommodates two 12 foot vehicle lanes, two 2.5 foot shoulders, and a 5 foot protected sidewalk.  The new structure was raised approximately 2 feet and extended longer than the previous structure in order to increase the waterway opening.  In addition to the bridge work, improvements were made to the Baxter Park creek bank upstream of the bridge to stabilize erosion and improve creek flow characteristics. All work related to the bridge project was formally completed in May, 2019.

Lindy Boulevard Bridge Deck Resurfacing

This project for the Lindy Boulevard bridge over Fishpot Creek will replace the bridge deck wearing surface and sidewalk concrete barrier as well as undertake minor structural repairs. The cost for this project is city funded. All work related to the bridge project was formally completed in October, 2019.

Howard George Drive Bridge Deck Rehabilitation

This project will perform structural repairs and complete deck replacement on the substandard rated bridge over Grand Glaize Creek on Howard George Drive.  The cost of this project is being offset by an 80% federal highway transportation fund reimbursement.  As part of the deck replacement, the sidewalk will be widened to 5 feet to meet current standards and protected from vehicle traffic by a new concrete barrier.  The roadway sidewalk either side of the bridge will be reconstructed to make it ADA compliant in accessing the bridge sidewalk.  When completed, the improvements will significantly increase the sufficiency and load ratings for the bridge.  This project is scheduled to be undertaken in 2020.
