Route 49 Bridge Replacement over Aaron’s Creek

  • Route 49 Bridge Replacement over Aaron’s Creek

The original bridge over Aaron’s Creek was built in 1935, and due to its age, was a failing structure. To improve driver safety, the existing bridge was removed and replaced with a new structure and approaches.  The new structure utilized pre-stressed concrete bulb-T beams that were reinforced by carbon fiber strands in lieu of reinforcing steel.

Quinn provided an inspector for this project, who coordinated daily with the VDOT project inspector, maintained a daily work report, and assisted with the Materials Notebook entries.

The inspector was also responsible for interpreting plans and shop built drawings; testing concrete for deck placement, retaining wall, soldier pile wall, and Kansas Corral railing and soils; verifying structural alignment and elevations; assisting the project inspector with documentation, and inspection of the specially designed soldier pile wall. Other work activities included deck grooving, excavation, guardrail installation, form work, drainage installation, seeding, and sign installation.
