Railroad Waterline Bridge Span Supports

A confidential oil and gas company needed to safely span three railroad bridges with a temporary waterline needed for fracking operations. Safety and stability were critically important in the unique fabrication of new bridge span supports. RETTEW worked closely with railroad representatives to increase their confidence in the approach and gain approval for installing the supports on a demanding schedule.

RETTEW’s team, with broad expertise in bridge engineering, design, and construction, prepared specifications for the bridge span support installation. Our team’s design and engineering of these supports alleviated the need for large, temporary waterline reroutes and additional boring underneath roads, and greatly decreased disturbance footprints, thereby reducing the amount of permitting required.

Our knowledgeable team of in-house experts was able to respond quickly to the project’s tight schedule and helped our client develop a solid working relationship with the railroad to avoid issues and miscommunications. The client realized a savings of time and money by avoiding additional environmental permitting.
