Massena Lateral Bridge Slide


This project consisted of replacing the existing bridge to increase structural capacity, improve roadway conditions, and enhance safety by providing a wider roadway. Construction zone safety was greatly improved due to the introduction of innovative accelerated bridge construction (ABC) methods.

The replacement structure is a single span 120’ x 44’ bridge with precast abutment footings, precast wingwalls and a precast superstructure fabricated adjacent to the existing bridge and moved into position by lateral slide.
