Business 65 Springfield Overpass
MoDOT; J8P2196, Bus. 65 – Greene County Bridge over BNSF Railroad bid on September 23, 2016. This was a 419’-6” (5) Span Concrete NU 35 girder Bridge that took an at Grade intersection and raised highway over the BNSF Railroad. This project consisted of (4) Intermediate Bents on spread footings that needed to be constructed in phases. Roadway elevation was raised with MSE Wall and Asphalt wedging to allow traffic to flow in and around project with temporary Bypass roads. This project was located in heavy Commercial area with a very small foot print and a main Utility corridor for the City of Springfield. We staged our construction and worked with local utilities, Railroad, and surrounding business owners to keep traffic flowing thru the project and to their businesses throughout the entirety of the project. BNSF Railroad required us to generate a Engineered Lift Plan to fly beams over their tracks and place. Our Lift Plan became the model plan for BNSF. Our partnership with MoDOT, BNSF Railroad, and City of Springfield Utilities allowed us to work around many obstacles to construct a safe successful project.
