This is a great article about the WIS 20 Reconstruction project in the Village of Waterford, Racine County, Wisconsin. Westbrook would like to bring specific notice to the portion under Unique Project Needs about the Fox River Bridge in which we designed. Westbrook was responsible for all structural design for this urban reconstruction project, and the structure plans for this project consisted of:
• Two-span prestressed girder bridge with a total length of 152’-6”.
• Six (6) soldier pile walls. Westbrook suggested using soldier pile walls to eliminate any right-of-way impacts to the front yards in this residential corridor.
• One Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining wall.
Westbrook developed structural staging plans for the prestressed girder bridge to be constructed in stages allowing traffic and pedestrians use of part of the existing structure during Stage 1. During Stage 2, traffic was switched on to the Stage 1 portion of the new structure. Highlights of the structure included two pedestrian sidewalks, two dedicated bike lanes, two traffic lanes, and a turn lane. The structure had a clear roadway width of 53′-0″ and an out-to-out structure width of 69′-0″.
