Project contracted with private owner, Brasfield & Gorrie
Project consisted of construction of a new bridge connecting downtown Richmond to the new Riverside on the James complex
Project consisted of a new two lane, 150 foot, two span bridge
Project included installation of sidewalks, ornamental railings and lighting
Installation of stairway from the bridge deck to access the C&O Canal under the bridge.
Bridge consisted of two abutments and a steel center pier
One of the abutments became part of the building into the parking deck
Bridge was constructed over the C&O Canal and directly under 240k power lines making steel erection and the deck placement very difficult
Included construction of a retaining wall for the approach work
Original design called for the wall to be constructed on H-pile and drilled caisson footers, which would have been very difficult given that it is between two existing buildings with very limited work area.
Corman and JMT redesigned the wall using H-piles and Chance anchors with lagging between the piles and then incorporated them into the retaining wall, saving the owner time and money.
