~ Site was very congested with utilities, drainage structures, the existing bridge, and the replacement bridge.
~ Hilfiker fabric wall utilized to shore approaches on the new bridge.
~ The fabric wall looked good with straight and fairly plumb walls with very little bulging.
~ The project will also include a 12 ft. soil nail wall in a cut section.
~ A value engineering proposal (VEP) to install a modular block wall with anchored temporary shoring has been submitted.
~ Anticipated traffic backups, which did not materialize, resulted in the contractor changing the traffic control plans to limit the time with a 2-lane pattern.
~ Due to the site congestion, 3-D CADD modeling would have been very useful for identifying conflicts.
