Railroad Bridge over Otter Creek

Vermont’s Agency of Transportation was undertaking the rehabilitation of Bridge 219 over Otter Creek. As part of this project, Engineers Construction, Inc. (ECI) needed to replace distressed stone-masonry pier with a new reinforced concrete pier cap supported on drilled shafts. SGH helped them by evaluating an alternate design and construction sequence to allow them to complete the project with limited weekend shutdowns of the railroad operations.
