Tracy Boulevard Bridge Seismic Retrofit

LOCATION:

Tracy, CA

DESCRIPTION :

This project was a seismic retrofit of a 1950’s bascule bridge on the Grant Line Canal.  The work included the driving of precast concrete piling, construction of below-deck concrete tie-beams, and installation of steel trunnion bearing braces.  The key constraint on the project was driven by permitting – a variety of issues led to most work being done in a 15 day period in September, 2006.

In addition, water depth issues made access to the work particularly challenging.
