Sabra & Associates, Inc. (SAI) was responsible for inspecting the replacement of the deteriorated stringers and lateral bracing per our firm’s recent bridge inspection and evaluations.  The two (eastbound and westbound) 200-foot bascule bridges consisted of four leaves, each complete with wind bracing, SAIy framing, center-locking machinery, and finger joints. All leaves were rehabilitated with new open grid decks, traffic barriers, and purlins, while floor beams, stringers, wind bracing, and SAIy framing were only replaced as necessary.

SAI also provided field construction inspection services twice a week for twelve months to ensure ASTM and AASHTO standards were in compliance. A two-member crew inspected structural placement of the aforementioned bridge components, in addition to coatings, design, and installation inspections.

SAI prepared painting plans, details and notes for all new and existing steel members as well as conducted shop drawing reviews. SAI also provided on-site office engineering support to the Office of Construction and Inspection.
