REPLACE STEEL NOTCH BRIDGE 1047 AT BREMERTON, WA
This design-build project replaces and upgrades an existing, removable, steel bridge at the head of Dry Dock 5 at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility. The existing facility was deteriorated and in need of repairs, which is being accomplished by replacement of the bridge structure. The new structure matches the existing configuration in the drydock and the existing running surfaces for vehicle, railroad, and portal cranes. The new structure meets current structural loading conditions and is a multi-girder redundant beam system that is not fracture critical. To facilitate future structural inspections a catwalk has been incorporated into the design.
