The Avenue 44 low water crossing is currently closed to traffic due to the damage from Tropical Storm Hilary. During construction, traffic will be detoured around the crossing so the bridge can be built in one stage.
The proposed bridge structure is a haunched cast in place concrete box girder bridge with three spans. The piers consist of two 9ft diameter columns with 10ft diameter Cast-in-drilled-hole (CIDH) piles. The bridge is set on seat type abutments with 3ft diameter CIDH pile footings. Bridge barriers include architectural treatments along with architectural bridge lighting. The construction also includes relocating the water lines into the bridge as well as other appurtenant utility work necessary to accommodate a gas line and telecommunication through the bridge. Expect difficult pile installation at both abutments and both pier locations due to presence of groundwater, caving soil, buried utilities, buried concrete lining, rock cobbles, and large concrete debris.
