Bridge #1147 Replacement

HWC was responsible for full-time inspection of the replacement of the Clay Street bridge #1147 in Lake County, Indiana.

The project included the demolition of the existing bridge and replacing it with a modern single span concrete box beam bridge. This project also included new concrete abutments, wingwalls, and approaches, as well as asphalt paving, guardrail installation, storm sewer, field drive entrances, and landscaping. An added emphasis was placed on scour protection for this project as the waterway beneath the bridge turns at a 90 degree angle. The project also utilized galvanized rebar in its bridge deck for increased life span of the structure.

The project was fully funded by Lake County. Project cost was approximately $562,000.00.
