Water Street Bridge
TEC provided professional design engineering and construction administration services for the replacement of the bridge (Br. S-05-022 = W-01-009) carrying Route 129 (Water Street) over the Saugus River in Saugus, MA. TEC’s structural team provided a complete structural design to replace the deteriorated granite clapper culvert with a precast concrete box culvert and adjacent precast concrete wingwalls. This bridge replacement project was part of MassDOT’s “Small Bridge Program,” meaning all relevant MassDOT Specifications and Details must be incorporated into the bridge design. Due to the large amount of daily traffic on Water Street, the client wished to minimize the time the road closure would be in place. TEC’s design incorporated the use of Prefabricated Bridge Elements and Systems (PBES) to accelerate the construction process and ensure the road closure did not exceed one weekend. TEC also provided construction administration services to oversee construction of the bridge and ensure the project was built in accordance with the Construction Documents and MassDOT Standard Specifications.
