THESE ARE SOME OF THE PROJECTS WE'VE WORKED ON:
Collier County Bridge Program Study, Collier County, FL – Included the inspection and evaluation of 66 bridges. The final report provided recommendations for rehabilitation and/or replacement for each bridge with estimated costs. It also provided recommendations that included a prioritization listing for the bridges for maintenance repairs and replacement. The report will be used as a tool to assist the County’s project managers in the programming of their 5 and 10 year bridge program.
Lee County Complete Streets Project, Lee County, FL – Bridging Solutions was hired by Thomas Marine Construction, Inc. to perform the design of 2 pedestrian bridges that provided access for a new multi-use path over wetland sloughs on this design-build project for the Lee County MPO. Both bridges consisted of welded steel trusses with cast in place concrete decks supported on CIP concrete abutments founded on spread footings.
Hidden Harbor Community, Fort Myers, Florida – Provided structural engineering services for Stock Development for the design of a 5000 foot long by 8 foot tall concrete segmental block retaining wall. The services included a retaining wall type study, preliminary design, final design construction plans, specifications, bidding assistance and construction engineering inspections. Global slope stability design concerns required the incorporation of a soil mixing ground improvement system.
Ann Olesky Park Fishing Pier, Immokalee, FL - Bridging Solutions prepared the final construction drawings and specifications for the replacement of the fishing pier at Ann Olesky Park on Lake Trafford in Immokalee, Florida for the Collier County Parks and Recreation Department. The new fishing pier consists of pressure treated timber stringers supported on pressure treated timber pile bents. The deck boards and railing components were constructed using Ipe, a Brazilian hardwood.
Babcock Ranch Entrance Bridge, Charlotte County, FL – Bridging Solutions prepared the final design plans and specifications for the entrance “faux” bridge to the new Town of Babcock Ranch off FL Route 31. It was constructed by Thomas Marine Construction. The bridge consists of 154 foot long by 16 feet high steel trusses supported on four, 10 foot wide by 5 foot long, cast in place concrete spread footings. The bowstring type trusses were modified to include the Babcock Ranch logo.
Charter School of Collier County Entrance Bridge, Collier County, FL – Bridging Solutions prepared the final design plans and specifications for the entrance bridge over the Cocohatchee Canal for a new charter school off Immokalee Road in Golden Gate Estates. The new bridge is a 55 foot span, adjacent, prestressed slab beam bridge founded on pile supported end bents.
