~ 3 span(65'-85'-65') Type IV girder bridge with 4' f drilled piers.
Observations and Points of Discussion:
~ This site utilized a rock causeway for construction access, but the temporary detour bridge was required to span the stream.
~ All Units were encouraged to promote awareness of such errors among their staff and the regulatory agency staff.
~ There was some general discussion on the costs of on-site detours, with this site being cited as an example because of the requirement to span the stream and to provide a pedestrian walkway by supplemental agreement. There was consensus to include verbiage, in the planning documents, permit applications, and contract, that will avoid similar issues in the future.
~ Temporary bridge had a pedestrian walkway, which the city requested for access to a nearby park.
A/I ~ Structure Design will discuss the importance of carefully reviewing and discussing permits with their staff.
