SPRINGFIELD- BRIDGE REPLACEMENTS, S-24-090 & S-24-091, ROOSEVELT AVENUE OVER CONRAIL SPUR & MAIN (DOUBLESTACK) LINE
The work under this project consists of the replacement of the Roosevelt Avenue Bridges over the Conrail Main Line and over the Conrail Spur Line. The proposed structure over the Main Line (near Bay Street) will be a three-span steel beam superstructure with a reinforced concrete deck. The approach roadways will be fully reconstructed and the profile will be slightly raised to achieve the required minimum vertical railroad clearance. The proposed structure over the Spur Line (near Cottage Street) will be a single span steel beam superstructure with a reinforced concrete deck. The bridge widths and the horizontal alignments of both bridges will remain essentially the same. Both bridges will be constructed in phases in order to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction. The addition of a sidewalk is proposed for the west side of the bridges on Roosevelt Avenue as a result of the recent private development in the area.
