Ogdensburg-Prescott Bridge Rehab
Ogdensburg, NY United States | 2021
The Center Street Bridge was constructed in 1901. It is 345 ft. long and connects the West and East sides of the banks of the Cuyahoga River. The pivot axis of the bridge is on one of the banks instead of in the middle of the river, so it's classified as a bobtail swing bridge. The bobtail design allows the bridge to pivot on a land-based pier, keeping the Cuyahoga River free from obstructions. There are two highway swing bridges in Ohio, but this is the only one that is operable.
Hot-dip galvanizing was chosen for the grating of this bridge because of the coating durability, corrosion performance, and life-cycle cost.
The cost for the project to rehabilitate the bridge was $8,400,000. The driving surface was replaced from concrete to steel grating, the sidewalks were refurbished, and new lighting was added. The grating that was used is a heavy-duty riveted deck grating and it covers 5,808 ft². Vehicle and pedestrian traffic was closed for the duration of the project.
Hot-dip galvanizing was chosen for the grating of this bridge because of the coating durability, corrosion performance, and life-cycle cost. Galvanizing was performed to the ASTM A123 specification. Residents and tourists can use the Canal Street Bridge knowing that outages will be minimized because of the improvements of this rehabilitation project.
