About the Project
This project replaces the superstructure of the the structurally deficient Hooes Road (Route 636) bridge over Accotink Creek in Springfield. Crews will:
- Remove and demolish the existing timber deck, asphalt surface, existing steel beams and bearings, remove tops of abutments and piers and approach guardrails.
- Modify concrete abutments and piers for new superstructure, place new bearings and erect new steel beams, construct new deck and railings, repave the approach pavement and install new guardrail.
The current bridge superstructure has a condition rating of 4 (poor). The three-span bridge is about 150 feet long and has 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 will be replaced with continuous beams with concrete deck. The bridge will retain 11-foot travel lanes and 2-foot shoulders.
As of Dec. 28, 2012, the bridge has re-opened to traffic.
About 330 vehicles per day used this section of Hooes Road.
