The old Sylvester Road Bridge was nearly 80 years old and in poor condition. It had cracked columns and girders, worn rails and deck, and an antiquated design that would not have withstood earthquake forces. After reviewing many options, engineers at the city, county, and state concluded that replacement was the most cost-effective solution for maintaining this corridor.
The new 220-foot long, single-span bridge will be slightly wider than the old bridge, with two traffic lanes and a five-foot wide sidewalk. It will look somewhat similar to the old bridge.
The shoring towers consist of ten foot wide frames made with 6” x 6” square steel tubing leg and bracing. The towers extension telescope used on the top to provide adjust up to seven feet and have top swivel adjusting screws. Additional swivel screws are positioned at the base of each frame leg.
SB Structures is a division of Scarcella Brothers Construction Company in Kent, Washington.
