PROJECT DESCRIPTION

B. Thayer Associates was contracted to provide engineering design services for the construction of two pre-cast vehicular bridge structures. The purpose of this project was to increase the load capacity of the two Venetian style bridges, allowing residents to evacuate and/or receive emergency services during severe storms.
Close attention was given to utilities in order to limit the impact of the project during construction and to maintain the community’s desired styling. In order to transition the new utilities, extensive coordination between the utility providers, designer and the Town was needed.
Services included:
  • Gathering utility plans in the areas of construction and coordinating correspondences between the utility providers and the design team
  • Obtaining necessary environmental permitting
  • Design all required Maintenance and Protection of Traffic (MPT) plans and signaling
  • Coordinate roadway upgrades to AASHTO and MUTCD guidelines
