Kinder Road (T-798) Bridge Replacement
North Bethlehem Township, Washington County, PA
Stahl Sheaffer provided engineering design for the replacement of an existing load posted bridge with a new reinforced concrete box culvert. Stahl Sheaffer was responsible for all design-related tasks including geotechnical/foundation reports, survey, roadway & bridge design, Hydrologic and Hydraulic reports, maintenance and protection of traffic, signing and pavement markings, drainage, Right-of-Way Plans, and environmental permitting. In addition to the box culvert, Stahl Sheaffer made significant adjustments to the existing vertical geometry along Kinder Road to reduce the profile grade from 26% to 4% at an adjacent intersection tie-in located 200 feet from the bridge site.
Stahl Sheaffer also designed safety improvements at the nearby intersection to assist with existing sight distance concerns. In addition, Stahl Sheaffer prepared all bidding and contract documents including construction plans, specifications, and estimates. This project has not yet been constructed.
