2014 Outstanding New Single-Span Bridge - Heth's Run Bridge Project
Association for Bridge Construction & Design, Pittsburgh Chapter
The Heth's Run Bridge Project, located on SR 8, Butler Street, won the 2014 Outstanding New Single-Span Bridge award from the Association for Bridge Construction & Design, Pittsburgh Chapter. Trumbull Corporation was recognized for its role as the contractor on this important project.
The project involved the excavation, demolition, and replacement of an existing concrete arch bridge structure over Heth’s Run. The new single-span bridge is a composite steel plate girder structure with a single span of 215 feet. It incorporates many of the historical and aesthetic features of the old structure, such as large decorative urns, balusters for the pedestrian railing, quoins on the abutments, decorative light standards and haunched steel girders painted the color of concrete. The new Heth’s Run Bridge opened after 13 months of construction.
