Lowell, MI: Sliding the Alden Nash Avenue Bridge Into Place

Lowell, MI: Sliding the Alden Nash Avenue Bridge Into Place

The new bridge will be constructed adjacent to the existing bridge and traffic will be diverted to the new bridge in its temporary location. The old structure was demolished and the new bridge was slid into place. Bridge slide technology greatly reduces the amount of time a bridge is out of service. M-50 was closed and detoured for only two weekends (during demolition and during the slide), as opposed to a multiple-month closure typically associated with a traditional bridge replacement.

Arlington, VA: Then and Now

In 1949, the Virginia Department of Highways, now VDOT, did a traffic study along Route 29 in Arlington. A few years ago, VDOT discovered an old reel of 16mm film taken during the study. We shot a drive-along of the Lee Highway in 2014 to show how this busy corridor has grown in the past 65 years.

Warwick, Rhode Island: Barton Corner Bridge Replacement

Warwick, Rhode Island: Barton Corner Bridge Replacement

In August 2014 we completed replacement of the Barton Corner Bridge, which carries four lanes of I-95 plus two auxiliary lanes at a busy interchange with Route 2 on the Warwick/West Warwick line. Using accelerated bridge construction, we built two halves of the bridge on land adjacent to the overpass, and then moved them into place. This enabled us to build the bridge much faster compared with conventional construction methods, which would have taken twice the time. This approach also allowed us to do the work with no impact to Interstate traffic prior to installation.

America’s Transportation Awards Top 10 Project Profile: Wyoming DOT

Wyoming Department of Transportation’s $146.2 million Togwottee Trail to Yellowstone project increased safety and mobility by upgrading a 50-year-old road on a major route leading to Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. New under-crossings were built so wildlife and snowmobilers can pass under the highway safely. New shoulders, passing lanes, and upgraded bridges and parking facilities allow a safe trip through some of America’s most beautiful scenery. Wyoming Department of Transportation’s Togwottee Trail to Yellowstone project was recognized as a Regional Winner in the 2014 America’s Transportation Awards competition and it is also a Top 10 finalist, competing for the National Grand Prize and the People’s Choice Award.
