    2001 - Illinois Route 29 Bridge over Sugar Creek
      State: Illinois ;    Year: 2001 ;    Location: 1 mile east of Springfield, in Sangamon County ;    Spans: > Three-span ;    Dimensions: Two adjacent bridges: (1) 253.1-ft long and 37.4-ft wide five-span eastbound bridge; (2) 251.0-ft long, 37.4-ft wide four-span westbound bridge ;    Beam Material: Steel ;    Structural Solutions: Full-depth precast deck panel w/PT; CIP reinforced concrete closure joints; Standard concrete overlay ;    Geotechnical Solutions: ;    Project Planning: ; Design-bid-build ;    Construction Equipment: The low bid for bridge pay items was $1.08 million, and the total contract was $6.77 million including roadwork and two additional bridges built with conventional decks. Cost was $57 per sq ft of bridge deck area, compared to the average re-decking cost at that time of $35 per sq ft. The additional costs can be attributed to first use; the Illinois DOT believes those costs will go down with increased usage and contractors becoming more accustomed to this type of work.
