Norfolk Southern Bridge Rehabilitation – Normal Avenue and Wallace Street
McHugh rehabilitated two rail bridges including Normal Avenue and Wallace Street, as part of the Ashland Avenue Yard Lead Improvement Project (WA3-NX-XXB-D-006-BD). Construction was phased in order to minimize any impact on train service.
Trains were rerouted onto one side of the bridges to allow for demolition of the existing structures and crews used steel shoring to support bridge girders at each demolition point. Deteriorated abutment walls were reinforced with steel and epoxy and new steel girders and stringers were placed onto the repaired abutment walls, followed by steel decking and a new concrete deck.
