This project included the replacement of the existing Bridge EB-117 over the Norfolk
Southern (NS) Railroad during the 2018/2019 Construction Seasons. The existing three-span steel girder bridge was replaced with a single span steel rolled girder bridge utilizing Accelerated Bridge Construction Methods. In order to complete the EB-117 Bridge project, two separate 59-hour road closures, one eastbound and one westbound along the Pennsylvania Turnpike were implemented.
Project Partnering played a crucial role in the successful completion of the project. Partnering started out informally during design with the coordination and planning between all entities involved in the design. Partnering then was carried out through construction with a formal partnering workshop and continued through project completion with coordination and cooperation between all project stakeholders.
