Client: US Army Corp of Engineers
Location: Eagle Pass, TX
This is a design/bid/build project of a new, 95’ span, single-lane access bridge for US Customs and Border Protection across the Eagle Pass Creek. The project entailed the construction of a pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete girder bridge over the Eagle Pass Creek. The creek runs through the Eagle Pass Golf Course and provides storm drainage for the southern part of Eagle Pass. The bridge structure consists of 4, TEXDOT (Texas Department of Transportation) Type 4B40 box girder beams. These beams were fabricated in San Antonio, Texas and transported to the site for placement. The bridge deck consists of cast-in-place slab with cast-in-place concrete barrier. The slab is 6” thick and conventionally reinforced. On either side of the bridge, new approach roads were constructed. A gravel road on one side and an asphalt one on the other side. Additional site work included directional and speed limit signage, seeding and planting, new gabion baskets and general site grading for the new approached.
