Wabash River Bridge Replacement
The Sagamore Parkway eastbound Bridge over the Wabash River was awarded to Superior Construction for $13.39 million. Construction is underway and the project has a completion date of June 2019. It is anticipated that the bridge will be open for traffic in the summer of 2018.
The project involves replacing the existing structure with a new, approximately 938-foot long, eight span bridge on the existing alignment. The new superstructure would be a concrete bulb tee design. The new bridge would provide two 12-foot travel lanes, standard shoulders (6-foot left and 11-foot right), and a multi-use trail on the bridge deck with accommodation for connections to a future multi-use trail on the south side of the road.
The maintenance of traffic during construction is for one lane in each direction on the westbound bridge.
