- Rail Bridge Over Barge Canal
Our bridge team provided design and engineering services for the replacement of mechanical, structural, electrical and control components on this lift bridge over the Victoria Barge Canal. The work entailed the complete replacement of the electrical system, including the addition of flux vector motor controls for new span drive gear motors and a programmable logic control (PLC) system to accommodate new drives and a new railroad signal system.
In addition to the mechanical components, the project provided a new CCTV system and navigation lighting. Structural improvements included the cleaning and lubrication of the wire ropes, reconstruction of the operator’s house, new rail joints, and installation of a new man-lift elevator system to provide access to the overhead structure.
