SULLIVAN COUNTY, MO BRIDGE
McClure provided survey, hydraulic analysis, permits, preliminary and final bridge design, and construction observation services to replace Bridge No. 3480010 utilizing the BRO program. The existing structure was a three-span wooden deck bridge over Mussel Fork Creek in Sullivan County, MO and had been closed due to a shifted pier and structural deficiencies. The final design included a two-span structure with cast-in-place concrete piles for the substructure and steel plate girders for the superstructure with a concrete deck. Reducing to a two-span structure has allowed for increased hydraulic capacity and reduced potential for scour. Additional width provided by the new structure allows for two-way traffic and large agricultural equipment as well.
