Stevens provided construction leadership, inspection services and materials sampling for the Trout Brook bridge replacement and approaches. This bridge project included removal of the old structure, construction of a new slab deck bridge, riprap, grading, base aggregate, asphaltic surface, beam guard, and pavement markings.
The existing structure was a wooden structure in poor condition. Due to heavy rains, the river was higher than anticipated, requiring a contract modification at the beginning of the project to place temporary shoring in place of turbidity barrier. After abutment construction, the large number of springs from behind the abutment required review and a change in the backfill material used due to these conditions.
