Bridge inspection reports and load rating calculations indicated that the steel superstructure, constructed in 1965, was no longer properly supporting legal load requirements and many steel superstructure elements were in an advanced state of deterioration. The project scope included engineering consulting services to develop plans, specifications, and an estimate for critical steel repairs, including in-depth inspection and Level I Load Rating for the entire bridge, determining the section loss on the main load carrying members, and preparing steel repair details and contract documents for improving the condition of structural steel framing and removing load posting.
