Forest Home Drive Bridge Rehabilitation

This locally administered, federal aid project involved the replacement of a historic steel truss bridge carrying Forest Home Drive over Fall Creek in the Town of Ithaca. Erdman Anthony provided the full range of services, including preliminary and final design, and construction support services. The high profile project was closely monitored by and coordinated with the adjacent residents and Cornell University.

The $1.8 million project provided a new 117 foot multi-girder bridge to carry one lane of traffic, several utilities and a new pedestrian sidewalk over Fall Creek. The historic truss structure was rehabilitated and then remounted on top of the new bridge to retain the historic look. Erdman Anthony provided the Resident Engineer and part time office engineering to complete the field inspection, project records, construction quantities, record plans and all reports to the client.
