Country Club Road Bridge
Replacement of the Country Club Road Bridge, Cheshire, CT
Cardinal Engineering provided complete engineering services for the replacement of the Country Club Road Bridge, which included surveying, bridge design, full-time contract administration, and resident engineering services.
Cardinal’s initial evaluation of this 24’-wide, 18.5’-long bridge revealed extensive deterioration of the stringers. The worst stringers had up to 100% section loss in the stringer webs directly over the bearings, which left them with zero load capacity. Cardinal immediately advised town officials to close the bridge. The alternative that was chosen to replace the deteriorated bridge was a 20’ precast concrete arch.
Cardinal also obtained Federal and Local Inland Wetland permits for this project.
Project Completion: 2011 / Project Cost: $500,000
