Ott Street Bridge Repairs

Located in the City of Allentown, the Ott Street Bridge over Cedar Creek was in need of repair. With the existing non-composite adjacent box-beam bridge’s fascia beams severely deteriorated and sidewalks forcing the City to close the shoulders. City officials desired a new superstructure that included an architectural treatment and restored safety for both vehicular and pedestrian travel.

The Ott Street Bridge superstructure replacement is a continuous prestressed-concrete spread box-beam bridge that features a stone pattern on the fascia beams and abutments to add architectural interest. We used high-strength concrete in the beams to maintain the existing hydraulic opening. RETTEW further enhanced aesthetics by refurbishing the existing hand railing and capping each of the sidewalk columns, which we widened for visual impact.
