About the Project
This project replaced the superstructure of the the structurally deficient Hooes Road (Route 636) bridge over Accotink Creek in Springfield. The project included:
- Removing and demolishing the existing timber deck, asphalt surface, existing steel beams and bearings, removing tops of abutments and piers and approach guardrails.
- Modifying concrete abutments and piers for new superstructure, placing new bearings and erecting new steel beams, constructing new deck and railings, repaving the approach pavement and installing new guardrail.
The previous bridge superstructure had a condition rating of 4 (poor). The three-span bridge was about 150 feet long and had a timber deck supported on 13 steel beams. The abutment foundations are steel piles and the pier foundations are concrete spread footings on rock. For this project, the entire existing timber deck/steel beam superstructure was replaced with continuous beams with concrete deck. The bridge retained 11-foot travel lanes and 2-foot shoulders.
About 330 vehicles per day used this section of Hooes Road.
