Superstructure Replacement over the Taunton River
CHA designed the replacement of this structurally deficient bridge by expanding the width of the structure and its approaches to improve traffic safety in a corridor scheduled for future widening. The structure spans the Taunton River, an environmentally sensitive area protected under the Wild and Scenic River Act. As a result, the design solutions for construction needed to pose minimal impacts to the environment.
The design team used Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) techniques and other methods to quickly deliver the project with minimal environmental impacts and enhance the natural beauty of the area.
