Taylor Road Bridge Replacement

Cornwall, NY

HVEA designed the replacement of the Taylor Road jack-arch bridge with a 48 foot, pre-cast concrete arch in the Town of Cornwall. Due to very tight site conditions and the hydraulically critical Woodbury Creek, special care was needed in the design of the replacement. Since the soil conditions were unfavorable for pile and/or sheet pile driving, it was necessary to utilize Sta-Pod units for scour protection.

HVEA designed cast-in-place retaining walls that were adjacent to the bridge structure. This included designing the wall and detailing the rebar in accordance with the AASHTO Bridge Manual for the applied soil pressures and highway loading acting on the wall.

This project was funded with federal funds and was progressed under the oversight review of the NYSDOT Region 8 Local Projects Group. This project included:

  • Replacement of the existing bridge
  • Roadway drainage
  • Right-of-way acquisition
  • Scour protection
  • Utility relocation
  • Hydraulic analysis
  • Erosion Control Plan
  • Resident engineering and construction inspection services
  • HVEA oversaw the construction
