Erdman Anthony provided inspection and documentation services for 1.3 miles of
four-lane, divided, controlled-access highway between Interstate 90 and
McClelland Avenue in the City of Erie, including replacement of the existing
Wintergreen Gorge Bridge over Four Mile Creek with a 1,200 ft, three-span
continuous steel plate girder structure. In addition to this new construction,
the intersections of Shannon Road, East 38th Street, and McClelland Avenue were
reconstructed to provide signalization for improved approaches to the East Side
Access Highway. This construction project was built to improve safety and reduce
traffic congestion on the east side of Erie and adjacent communities.
shared bike path and walkway was constructed near the new highway to safely
accommodate pedestrians and cyclists. To mitigate noise, a sound barrier wall
was installed between the roadway and a housing development along Shannon Road
and East 38th Street. An aquatic design facing the roadway and a barn-wood
finish on the residential side enhance the sound wall's aesthetic
characteristics. The Wintergreen Gorge Bridge includes an automated anti-icing
system. Only two bridge piers were constructed to comply with strict
environmental controls that protect the sensitive gorge and creek. Access was
limited because of the environmental concerns, complicating construction in the
steep gorge terrain.
