S&B partnered with James Construction Group (JCG) to provide Design-Build services for a project that includes an 840'-long bridge with two 12' lanes and 8' shoulders, approaches, 24'-wide tactical road and bridge for military use, grading and drainage improvement, utility relocation, new lighting, and bridge railing to improve safety and compliance with current design standards.
Existing low-water crossing culverts were removed after bridge construction to improve drainage flows and greatly reduce maintenance. The bridge structure provides a 100-year flood water surface elevation. Working closely with JCG, S&B introduced several design innovations such as the use of a design quality control plan, which outlined processes and procedures for conformance with USACE criteria.
To expedite the design and minimize project duration, the team prepared several packages concurrently, including SWPPP, Prep ROW/Fencing, TCP, site civil, bridge layouts, and foundations, bridge substructure and superstructure, roadway and traffic.
