PROJECT COST: $693,500
COMPLETION: Fall 2012
This project replaced a bridge on Shaffer Path. The new structure is a 27’ long x 10’ high x 16’ span precast concrete arch bridge that was pre-manufactured by CONSPAN. The entire structure was made of precast concrete. The bridge was constructed in three weeks. New approach guiderails were installed at all 4 bridge corners. The arch has an open bottom leaving the natural stream bed undisturbed.
Additionally Shaffer Path received a full depth reclamation from a severely deteriorated, single access lane with water ponding, cracking, and settlement into a new two lane paved municipal roadway. Driveway aprons and guiderails were replaced. New stormwater pipe and inlets were installed and connected to a new drainage swale system. Paving section consisted of 2A subbase , warm mix base asphalt, and warm mix surface asphalt.
Construction was completed in three weeks. Engineering included obtaining a DEP General Permit GP-11, design, bidding, and construction phase engineering.
