Atwood Lake Road over Jones Creek Rehabilitation

What was the Challenge?

The two original bridges on Atwood Lake Road were identical, consisting of three 12-foot diameter, corrugated steel pipes. During a storm event in October of 2019, the northern bridge was damaged and the southern bridge was completely washed away, leaving a more than 60-foot wide opening. The Town was forced to close Atwood Lake Road and implement an off-site detour on a seasonal road until the bridges could be reconstructed.

How did Barton & Loguidice provide a solution?

B&L completed the preliminary design including a hydraulic analysis, cost estimates, alterative selections to advance the FEMA process and obtain design approval. The northern bridge was rehabilitated by installing three, 11-foot diameter corrugated steel pipes within the original pipes; the southern bridge was replaced with a 65-foot span, integral abutment bridge. Additionally, approximately 575 feet of the road needed to be reconstructed.

Why was the project a success?

While this work had not been part of the Town’s immediate plans, under the FEMA-assistance program from this declared disaster, the Town was able to not only replace/rehabilitate two damaged bridges, but also reconstruct them to meet current NYSDOT design standards, bring them into compliance with and to meet the hydraulic requirements of the NYSDOT Bridge Manual.
