CHW’s Construction Services team is kicking off construction this week in Putnam County for the CR 309D Etonia Creek Bridge project. This project will encompass the repair & rehabilitation of the existing bridge.
Construction will be completed in phases to allow the bridge to remain open at all times. Phasing of the bridge work is as follows: 1.) The existing bridge will remain open while the widened portion is constructed. 2.) Once the newly constructed widened portion is complete, FDOT will inspect to ensure it is safe for unrestricted traffic use. 3.) The existing bridge will then close and the newly constructed portion will open for unrestricted traffic. 4.) The existing bridge will then be reconstructed according to plans. 5.) The two segments will then be combined and opened for unrestricted traffic. Construction will take approximately nine months.
CHW will be providing Construction Engineering Inspection services for bridge rehabilitation, channel excavation, channel protection, pile driving, settlement and vibration monitoring, reconstruction of the approach roadway, and milling and resurfacing to tie-in to the existing CR-309D.
