Main Street Bridge Replacement and Road Reconstruction
Client: Hulmeville Borough
Location: Bucks County, PA
Type/Size: Bridge Replacement and Road Reconstruction
Services: Municipal Engineering
This project involved the replacement of an existing single span bridge consisting of stone masonry and concrete abutments and a concrete slab over an unnamed tributary to the Neshaminy Creek with a precast reinforced concrete box culvert. Due to the condition of the existing bridge Main Street was closed to traffic for several years prior to this project. The new box culvert was constructed to approximately the same dimensions and at the same location to the existing lines and grades as the existing bridge. Associated channel protection was placed to eliminate the potential for scouring and to reduce erosion. The reconstruction of Main Street and drainage improvements were also performed. PCS provided survey, bid and construction documents, construction observation, and contract administration for this project.
