I-290 Bridges Rehabilitation

BSC Group provided bridge rehabilitation and preservation design services for 12 bridges along I-290 in Worcester, MA, which involved the design of stringer replacements, deck slab modifications for continuity, and bridge roadway joint replacements. One of the largest—and most complex—jobs involved the 8-span, 1,600-foot bridge carrying I-290 traffic over multi-lane ground level roadways and water. To rehabilitate the deficient structure, BSC jacked up the bridge off of shoring towers to allow for repairs to be completed—a challenging process, due to some of the shoring towers existing in a river and next to the roadway passing underneath the bridge.
