REPLACE STEEL NOTCH BRIDGE 1047 AT BREMERTON, WA
This design-build project replaced and upgraded an existing, removable steel bridge at the head of Drydock 5 at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility. The existing facility had deteriorated, requiring 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 was been incorporated into the design.
