On-Call Bridge Assessments

Amid our many projects for ODOT, FSB provided repair assessments for five separate Oklahoma bridges.

Our resulting recommendations include: bridge superstructure replacement, abutment and pier cap widening, approach widening and guardrail upgrades. Following the assessments, FSB is currently designing repairs to four of these bridges. They include:

State Highway 63 over Sycamore Creek Bridge rehabilitation – LeFlore County, Oklahoma

Found to be structurally deficient during the assessment, FSB is designing a bridge rehabilitation and, at the request of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, is including a widened roadway to include shoulders for improved safety. This 186’, steel beam, three-span project employs a shoo-fly during rehabilitation to reduce construction time and cost.

State Highway 63 over Richmond Creek Bridge rehabilitation – LeFlore County, Oklahoma

Following an assessment that concluded the bridge to be structurally deficient, FSB is designing a rehabilitation project for this approximately 41 LF, single span, steel beam bridge. The rehabilitation includes widening the roadway and bridge deck, shoulders and guardrail. A shoo-fly will be utilized to minimize disruption of traffic.

U.S. Highway 271 over a no-name creek – Pushmataha County, Oklahoma

The rehabilitation design for this approximately 51 LF, single span, steel beam bridge includes widening the roadway and bridge deck, shoulders and guardrails. A shoo-fly also is being used to improve construction time, cost and quality.

U.S. Highway 271 over Snow Creek – Pushmataha County, Oklahoma

FSB found that due to a structural deficiency, rehabilitation for this approximately 61 LF, single span, steel beam bridge would be required. The project is complicated by the combination of a shallow angle intersection, a horizontal curve and a vertical curve in close proximity to the east end. The rehabilitation project includes widening the roadway, shoulders and guardrails, and using a shoo-fly to expedite construction time and reduce cost.
