COVERED BRIDGE

Oxford BODYNamed for the original timber covered bridge that once stood in its place, the Covered Bridge in Oxford was in need of replacement due to its aging superstructure and scour susceptible substructure.  The two span, 170’-0” long replacement bridge was constructed on a realignment in order to accommodate changing needs of the evolving town and maintain traffic on the existing bridge during construction.  Weathering steel plate girders of the superstructure complement the natural setting of the bridge nestled in the Western Foothills of Maine.  The pile supported integral abutments and post-tensioned pile bent pier substructure elements alleviate scour concerns and resist heavy ice loads at the site.
