- Rail Bridge Over Bayou Boeuf
Our team provided design and engineering services for the replacement of a 700-foot through plate girder bridge with a center pivot swing span over Bayou Boeuf in Amelia, Louisiana. The project entailed replacement of the existing superstructure and the addition of six new piers between the existing piers.
The new bridge consists of both concrete and steel spans and features 22-foot diameter filled sheet pile protection cells upstream and downstream. The design utilized prefabricated pile driving templates and bracing during construction.
In addition to bridge design, the team provided all of the mechanical and electrical design for upgrades to the 150-foot TPG center swing span. The improved span features flux vector variable speed drives to control the span drive motors and closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance cameras with DVR.
The team also provided all necessary regulatory permitting and developed construction staging to minimize traffic disruption.
