Prince Creek West Connector Bridge

  • Owner:  BEC II
  • Construction Cost: $2,475,021
  • Completion Date:  June 2006

Scope of Services:

  • Build New 624’ Long x 39’ Wide Flat Slab Bridge with Pedestrian Path
  • Construct Keystone Retaining Wall at End Bents
  • Install Exterior 8” Water Main

Prince Creek Bridge for BEC2: A temporary elevated crane access trestle was used the entire length of the bridge to minimize the environmental impact to the wetland areas under the bridge. Twenty one flat slab spans ranging from 22’ long to 40’ long were cast on falsework supported by the pier caps. 132 concrete prestressed piles 14” square support the entire structure. Concrete parapet divides the pedestrian path from traffic and timber barriers on both sides of the bridge were chosen for their aesthetic properties. Keystone retaining walls were erected and backfilled at the end bents to serve as wing walls.
