2017 - Cannelville Road Bridge
- Year ABC Built: 2017
- State: Ohio
- Owner: Muskingum County
- Location: Rural
- Spans: One-span
- Beam Material: Steel
- Max Span Length (ft.): 52.50
- Total Bridge Length (ft.): 52.50
- Construction Equipment: Conventional
- State ID #: Mus-C0007-00.01
- NBI #: SFN - 6036083
- Coordinates: Latitude: 39.8044434, Longitude: -82.0680542
- Project Summary: SPS deck on press-brake-formed steel tub girder Modular Decked Beams
- Project Location: Cannelville Road over Riders Run Creek in the village of Roseville in Muskingum County, Ohio
- Mobility Impact Time: The superstructure was erected in 20 minutes and bolted together in one day. The bridge was closed a total of 26 days. The impact to the neighboring community was minimal. Fire, EMS, and school systems saved many dollars not having extended use of the 8-mile detour.
- Impact Category: Tier 4 (within 1 month)
reduced onsite construction time - helped maintain essential services while reducing life cycle costs and maintenance cost due to the nature of the watershed
- Dimensions: 52.5 ft long and 24 ft wide single span
- Average Daily Traffic (at time of construction): 639
- Traffic Management: Conventional construction would have required extended use of the 8-mile detour.
Existing Bridge Description:
The existing 38-ft-long and 22-ft-wide bridge was deteriorated and needed replacement.
Replacement or New Bridge:
Each of the two modular decked beam units weighed 31 tons and had two galvanized Press-Brake-Formed Steel Tub Girders with spray metallized Sandwich Plate System (SPS) deck panels, complete with bridge railing, for a projected 100-year service life. Advantages of this innovative superstructure include prefabrication and weight savings that allowed the rapid onsite installation, and reduced section depth due to the thin SPS decks and structurally efficient girder cross section.
The bridge roadway was closed and all traffic was re-routed to an 8-mile-long detour. Standard construction methods were used for the substructure (cast-in-place concrete footer and abutments). The superstructure was prefabricated offsite and delivered to the jobsite on two flatbed trailers. The half-width modules were erected in 20 minutes and bolted together in one day, followed by application of the waterproof membrane and asphalt overlay. After setting the superstructure, the road was opened to traffic less than 10 days later. The bridge was replaced in a total of 26 days, ahead of the 30-day maximum allowed closure.
Because this structure was a "one-off" structure, the design was cumbersome since there were no standard ODOT drawings to reference.
