CR87 Bridge over Skinner Creek
Foit-Albert Associates was contracted by the Jefferson County Highway Department to provide design services and construction inspection for County Route 87, Sandy Creek Road over Skinner Creek under a locally administered federal aid project. The existing structure was severely deteriorated, structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. Foit-Albert Engineer’s design replaced the existing structure with a structure that utilizes steel W-shaped girders. The replacement bridge is a single-span structure that is 69' +/- long x 29' wide (fascia to fascia) and is comprised of 5 rolled steel W-shaped girders spaced at 6'-0" O.C. and a 9 1/2" thick reinforced monolithic concrete deck. The superstructure is supported by concrete abutments. Galvanized two rail steel bridge railing (low volume) and box beam approach guide rails were designed for this project. The existing concrete pier was removed from the center of Skinner Creek. Drainage, utilities, signage, pavement markings, guide rail and adjacent landscaping were adjusted, as required. This project design was completed in December 2106, which is two (2) months ahead of the originally planned PS&E date. Foit-Albert provided design, survey, mapping, permitting, environmental, and construction inspection.
