Replacement of McGraw Marathon Road (CR 116) Bridge over Hunts Creek
What was the challenge?
The original McGraw Marathon Road bridge over Hunts Creek was built in 1930 and consisted of a two-span filled spandrel concrete deck arch superstructure founded on spread footings on soil. The bridge carries more than 1,500 vehicles per day and serves as a vital link for local residents, businesses, and farms.
How did Barton & Loguidice find a solution?
This project focused on restoring the long-term integrity of the crossing. The new bridge consists of a 53’-6” long single-span, steel multi-girder superstructure with a cast-in-place concrete deck. The new substructures are located immediately in front of the existing arch foundations to reduce the span length and avoid conflict with the adjacent driveways. The new cast-in-place concrete integral abutments are supported on steel H-piles driven to refusal. The bridge includes 11’ wide travel lanes and 4’ wide shoulders to accommodate agriculture vehicles and snow plows.
Why was the project a success?
This project was a success because it was completed on time and within budget. The bridge successfully carries more than 1,500 vehicles daily and reconnected the community.
