Originally built by Superior Construction in the 1970s, we were honored to continue our legacy and replace the US 35 bridge over Norfolk Southern Railroad. We completely reconstructed the entire bridge superstructure. The multi-phased, fast-track bridge replacement included removing and replacing the deck as well as structural steel repairs. To ensure successful project completion and minimizing impacts to ongoing operations at the adjacent LaPorte County Courthouse, Norfolk Southern Railroad, and LaPorte Hospital, we leveraged weekly meetings to ensure transparent communication and implement pre-planning. We also implemented a complex maintenance of traffic (MOT) plan to ensure the safety of crews as well as vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
