GEA-166-01.08- Twin-Pipe Structure Replacement
Hambden Township, Geauga County, OH
Stahl Sheaffer’s first project with the Ohio Department of Transportation – GEA-166-01.08, is a twin-pipe structure replacement beneath SR 166 in Hambden Township, Geauga County. Stahl Sheaffer’s bridge group is teaming with JMT, S&ME, and Lawhon & Associates to replace the original twin-pipe structure built in 1961 with a four-sided concrete box culvert. As part of the scope, Stahl Sheaffer will perform hydraulic studies with several combinations of grade changes and box sections, in an attempt to reduce the culvert’s span to below 10 ft., so the district can remove it from ODOT’s bridge inventory and the burden of annual inspections.
