Eden Road Bridge — also known as Big Conestoga #7 — was on its way to becoming a big maintenance expenditure for Lancaster County. A deteriorating bridge deck, failing abutments, cracking structure, rotation, and settlement were all significant concerns. Since the bridge is one of the most heavily-traveled bridges owned by the County, it was becoming more and more critical for them to replace it.
As engineer of record, RETTEW is providing comprehensive engineering solutions for replacing this County-owned bridge. Eden Road Bridge is the third-largest bridge in the County’s inventory, measuring
228 feet long with a deck area of more than 8,200 SF. Our services will range from surveying and wetland delineation to geotechnical investigations and permitting to construction administration. Once replaced, this bridge will again provide safe passage on a very high-volume road through Manheim and East Lampeter Township.
