Date : 09/22/2019


     
The Travis Spur Rail Bridge Replacement project was presented as a paper
at the AREMA 2019 Conference that took place in Minneapolis, MN from
September 22-25, 2019. Ted Henning, PE, and Seth Condell, PE, from Parsons
Corporation, and Jing Kang, PE, and Maulik Patel, PE, from SJH Engineering,
P.C., authored the paper.
 
One of the many challenges to be overcome during Goethals Bridge
Replacement Project was the replacement of the existing Travis Spur Rail
Bridge. The ABC replacement of the Travis Spur Rail Bridge was an integral
part of the scope of this ambitious program, to remove what would otherwise
be a choke point for traffic on the underlying highway and for the future transit
corridor. The award-winning project included an unique connection between the
precast cap beams and the cast-in-place columns. The bridge was replaced
over a weekend shut-down.
