Rock Creek Bridge Improvements

Project Description

This project involved the repair of Rock Creek Bridge. In April of 2008, heavy rains resulted in irreparable structural damage to the east bridge abutment and erosion of a section of roadway. Following a preliminary structural inspection, it was recommended that the bridge be closed for safety reasons. Hawkins-Weir assisted Crawford County, Arkansas in the development of a Structural Assessment Report, preparation of a successful funding application to FEMA (87.5% FEMA Grant, 12.5% Local Funds), the design and contract administration for the replacement of the east bridge abutment, and reinstallation of the bridge superstructure and roadway surfaces. Rock Creek Bridge was re-opened six (6) months following its closure.
