This project includes the replacement of an existing slab bridge carrying S.R. 0522 over Tributary to Big Cove Creek. After reviewing the site constraints, including utilities, buildings, and a billboard, and the difficulties associated with phasing the replacement, SPK, in conjunction with PennDOT, decided to advance an Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) option. This option included a weekend detour of the 2,500 ADT, facilitated through the extensive use of precast components. Early communication with area businesses was critical in securing buy-in for this ABC approach.
