Knight Road Bridge Replacement

Knight Road Bridge Replacement

Bursich is serving as the prime consultant for Montgomery County Roads & Bridges in the replacement of County Bridge #237, Knight Road over the Green Lane Reservoir in Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County. The existing structure was an 83-foot-long pre-stressed concrete adjacent box beam bridge with a substandard bridge width of 20 feet. The existing structure showed signs of serious deterioration along the front face of the abutments and the bottoms of the pre-cast beams. It also included substandard structure-mounted barrier protection and was posted with a five-ton weight limit due to the structural deficiencies mentioned above. The existing structure was replaced with a structure of similar type and size, which maintained the existing roadway profile. Other alternate structures were also investigated to compare costs and impacts. Horizontal and vertical roadway geometry was maintained for the approaches to the new structure. The bridge was designed in accordance with PennDOT 3R criteria and using the PennDOT BRADD 3 computer software to expedite the design process and minimize design costs.

Environmental coordination was an important aspect of this project because the bridge is located in Green Lane Park and spans the reservoir which is a public drinking water source for Aqua PA. PennDOT section 4(f) environmental coordination was required. Because of the park and recreational setting, incorporating functional and aesthetic features such as a continuation of the bike path was considered as a component of this project.

 

Wood-Vine Connector Design-Build Project

Lansdale Borough Streetscape Design-BuildThis $3.5-million Design-Build project, partially funded by a Pennsylvania Community Transportation Initiative (PCTI) grant, provided an improved alternate route for vehicles traveling between West Main Street and South Broad Street. Bursich worked with Skippack-based Marino Corporation to complete the project for PennDOT 6-0. It involved roadway reconstruction of Derstine Avenue from Wood Street to Susquehanna Avenue; Susquehanna Avenue from Derstine Avenue to Vine Street; and Vine Street from Susquehanna Avenue to Green Street; in addition to a mill and overlay of Vine Street from Green Street to Broad Street. Also included were drainage improvements, new sidewalks and curbs including approximately 39 ADA pedestrian ramps along the route. Streetscape enhancements included decorative lighting, brick hardscaping, street trees, bike racks, benches, and plantings. Parking lots were also reconstructed at three borough-owned facilities. Post-construction stormwater management was included as well as erosion and sediment control, in addition to acquisition of an NPDES permit.
