The Tampa District of American Bridge Company, an AISC member, was awarded multiple bridge contracts the past two months, already exceeding its 2012 targets.
The Florida steel bridge projects include:
The Tom’s Harbour Channel Bridge Replacement project in Duck Key, which involves demolition and removal of the existing bridge superstructure and extensive repairs to the substructure, while keeping the bridge open to traffic during the rebuild. Construction has already started on this five-span, 250-ft-long, 35-ft-wide bridge, and completion is expected before the end of this year.
The Port Manatee Berth 12 Wharf Extension and Container Terminal project in Palmetto, which involves an extension at the end of the existing Berth 12 (also built by American Bridge), with a new 590-ft-long deep water steel combination-wall bulkhead with associated concrete cap, moorings and fenders. More than 900 tons of steel is being used for the project; construction starts this month and is expected to be completed next summer.
