Bucks County Bridge #183 Rehabilitation

G&A was retained by Bucks County to design and obtain environmental permits for the rehabilitation of the existing bridge in order to remove its current Structural Deficiency designation. The bridge was originally built in 1876 and reconstructed in 1933. The existing structure was a single span Steel Arch Pratt Pony Through-Truss bridge.  This type of historic structure is seldom encountered on today’s modern roadways. The proposed superstructure repairs include modifications to the existing welded connections of the truss, salvaging and reusing the existing open grid bridge deck, and adding safety features such as structure mounted guide rail, transition guide rail, approach roadway guide rail and approach end treatments. Additionally, installation of scour countermeasures at the existing abutments and wingwalls along with installation permanent erosion and sediment control features will be proposed in order to mitigate future stream scour at the bridge.

G&A conducted structural and environmental studies, prepared documents for bidding and permitting, and is currently providing construction phase services including shop drawing and contractor submittal reviews, field visits, field testing, and consultations during construction.
