Putnam County Bridge Number 59 on CR725E in Putnam County, IN

Location of Project: Putnam County, IN

Services Provided: Design, Survey

Description of Project:  The existing bridge was a single span (30’c-c) poured in place slab on vertical abutments on spread footings.  The existing bridge superstructure had deteriorated badly and scour had compromised both abutments.  PCS Engineers surveyed and prepared construction documents for this bridge replacement.  Improvements included a new single span (49’c-c) prestressed composite box beam bridge on spill through abutments on piling. Also included were approach guardrail replacement, approach roadway resurfacing, signage and drainage improvements.   The estimated construction cost was $162,000 and was entirely locally funded.  All improvements complied with the then current INDOT procedures and materials.
