US 52 over Wabash River – Bridge Blast

General Scope

The US 52 Bridge Over the Wabash River project consisted of replacing an existing bridge over the Wabash River with a new 938-foot long, seven-span bridge. The project had several challenges including demolition of a bridge over a major waterway, designing on alignment while working around the existing bridge, and removing massive existing submerged foundations. We excel at solving complex problems and are honored to be recognized for our partnering with Indiana Department of Transportation, Purdue University, and Parsons for a successful project.
Partnering with INDOT and Purdue University, the project consisted of the complete removal and reconstruction of a seven-span structure while implementing environmental protection for both wetlands and the Wabash River. Unique to the project, it is the first bridge that INDOT has utilized static pile testing on large diameter piling. We successfully completed more than 50,000 incident free man-hours with zero recordable or loss time injuries. We used complex problem solving to successfully overcome the unique challenges faced on this project.
