West Cove Bridge

 

Grantham, New Hampshire

D&K conducted a visual inspection of a two-lane, circa 1978 steel beam bridge with a covered sidewalk. The existing laminated timber deck structure is supported by concrete abutments on piles, spanning 69 ft over Eastman Lake. Field inspection included a complete visual inspection of all accessible bridge components. Measurements and photographs recorded existing conditions and D&K engineers noted observed deficiencies. We completed a review of existing engineering drawings and inspection reports for the current structure, as provided by Eastman Community Association (ECA). D&K completed an inspection report, complete with color photos and construction cost estimate, including conclusions and recommendations for short- and long-term improvements to deteriorating steel beams and eroding abutments. ECA decided to replace the deck and retain the steel beams and abutments.

D&K prepared contract drawings detailing replacement of the existing timber deck with a new glue laminated timber deck. The project required cutting and moving the existing covered walkway several feet to make room for construction of the new deck.
