Bassett Engineering designed, permitted, bid, and inspected construction of the installation of a new GRS-IBS bridge in the Clifford Township Community Park over the East Branch of Tunkhannock Creek. BE selected a prefabricated steel truss recreation bridge and designed GRS abutments, a revolutionary bridge technology backed by PennDOT and the FHWA. The bridge will require minimal maintenance by the township and is able to pass floods up to the 100-year storm. The weathering steel truss spans 70’ with a clear width of 8’ allowing pedestrians and Township utility vehicles to access the previously inaccessible parts of the park across the creek. This bridge is a beautiful addition for Clifford Park and has many great uses for residents to enjoy.
The project was constructed by Barhite Excavating of Clifford, PA.
