Sumneytown Pike Reconstruction and Widening

Sumneytown Pike Reconstruction and Widening

Bursich provided construction inspection services for the reconstruction and widening of Sumneytown Pike in Upper Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County, PA. This project was a priority for the township to remove a traffic bottleneck at the railroad bridge over Sumneytown Pike. Bursich's responsibilities included inspection of day-to-day roadway construction, verifying the stage construction and traffic sequencing, development of daily inspection logs, and review of design change requests. The inspection of the railroad bridge replacement was performed by others. Bursich acted as the point of contact in the field for the roadway reconstruction and coordinated with the contractor, the prime consultant for the construction management, and the township manager during the work.

 

90-Mile Electric Transmission Line Stakeout

90-Mile Electric Transmission Line Stakeout

The Mount Pleasant/Townsend Road Project for Delmarva Power and Light project entailed Bursich Associates field surveyors staking out more than 90 miles of poles and right-of-way for a new 230-KV electric transmission line in the State of Delaware. It traveled from Red Lion Creek, just north of the C&D Canal to the Indian River just north of the Maryland line. Utilizing GPS, a primary control network was established to encompass the entire 90-mile project area. With control established, Bursich was able to locate existing right-of-way limits and boundary ties. Many surveying disciplines were utilized including, geodetic surveying, aerial mapping, and stakeout. Additional topographic surveys were completed in the areas of stream crossings to verify the proposed wire clearances. An ATV and an amphibious mobile vehicle called a Marsh Master were utilized to help our crews work in difficult terrain. The use of these vehicles allowed Bursich to stay ahead of construction crews and ultimately complete the project under budget and on time.

 

Sheeder Mill Road Bridge Rehabilitation

Sheeder Mill Road Bridge Rehabilitation

Bursich Associates provided construction stakeout to Wilmington, Del.-based Eastern Highway Specialists for the $1.6-million rehabilitation of County Bridge #194, Sheeder Mill Road spanning the French Creek in East and West Vincent Townships, Chester County, PA. The existing 123-year old structure was an 88-foot-long steel truss bridge that was scheduled to be lifted free of its existing foundation and temporarily set aside for repairs and painting while existing bridge abutments were demolished and reconstructed. Bursich provided stakeout for the initial erosion and sedimentation control measures along with several construction baselines to be used for the reconstruction of both bridge abutments along with re-establishing the roadway grade lines. Two construction benchmarks were established, one on each side of the French Creek, to aid workers during construction. Once the new abutments were completed, the steel structure was lifted back into place and a new deck was added to increase the bridge rating from three tons to 19 tons. Construction started in July 2009 and concluded in May 2010. The bridge provides an important route over the creek for not only cars, but horseback riders.
