Gilead and Wright Road Bridges

 

Bethel, Vermont

Tropical Storm Irene destroyed Bridges #35 and #37, isolating residences on Wright Road and Gilead Brook Road from all other Town and State highways. D&K evaluated replacement alternatives; made recommendations for replacement options; conducted hydrologic and hydraulic analyses; coordinated with utilities; and provided survey, permitting, engineering design, contract plans, cost estimates, bid phase services, and observation during construction for both bridge replacements. The Town received Public Assistance funding from FEMA to replace the bridges. D&K recommended the Town replace Bridge #35 with a new 31.5 ft span, precast concrete rigid frame supported on cast-in-place abutments, and that the Town replace Bridge #37 with a new 37 ft span, precast concrete rigid frame supported on cast-in-place abutments. Because the replacement structures were larger than and dissimilar to the former structures, D&K advocated on behalf of the Town to have FEMA approve the upgrade. D&K assisted the Town during the bid and construction phases to solicit and review bids, review shop drawings, and conduct routine field observation of construction to ensure the bridges were constructed in accordance with the design documents.
