Bridge Design

Got a low point that you can’t cross? Let the engineers at Choice One provide you a bridge to success! (Ok, we’re done with the puns now…) Whether it’s for a public/private roadway or recreational bikeway, our team of experts can take you from a napkin sketch to construction plans with ease.

Bridge Prequalifications:

ODOT – Level 1.1/1.2 Bridge Design

Our Bridge Design Types Include:

Bridge_ConcreteSlab

Concrete Slab Bridge:

  • Bridge decks constructed of reinforced concrete poured on-site.
  • Single, double, triple spans
Bridge_ConcreteBoxBeam

Prestressed Concrete Box Beam Bridges:

  • Built for public/private roadways and driveways to handle all legal traffic loads.
  • Single, double, triple spans
Bridge_WaterAndSanitary

Bikeway/Pedestrian Bridges:

  • Built for use by pedestrians and/or bicycles, typically incorporated in bike paths, trails, or in parks.
Bridge_BoxCulvert

Box Culverts:

  • Four-sided, precast, concrete structure with headwall and wingwalls.
  • Installed perpendicular or skewed.
Bridge_ThreeSidedCulvert

Three-Sided Culverts:

  • Flat top or arch, precast, concrete structure with headwall and wingwalls.
  • Installed perpendicular or skewed.
Bridge_LowFlow

Low Flow Crossings:

  • Built for low flow stream crossing applications (residential driveways, park entrances, etc.).

Additional Bridge Services:

Bridge_Analysis-Study

Bridge Hydraulic and Scour Analysis:

  • Determination of how much water can flow through the bridge opening as well as the impacts fast moving water has on the surrounding embankment at the bridge.
Bridge_Analysis-Study

Structure Type Study:

  • Determining the best structure alternative for a water crossing based on surrounding impact, constructability, hydraulic analysis, and cost.
Bridge_FEMA

FEMA Floodplain Analysis and Permitting:

  • Create a computer-generated model establishing the current flood elevation of an existing water crossing.
  • Re-run the computer-generated model with additional fill from a proposed structure to verify its floodplain impacts.
  • Prepare a report with the model results illustrating the impacts of a proposed structure and which alternative is the best choice.
Bridge_ArmyCorpsPermit

Army Corps. of Engineers Permitting:

  • Preparation and submittal of the Army Corps. of Engineers application forms for the project that impact ACOE recognized navigable waters.

“One of Choice One’s most noteworthy qualities is their willingness to stand behind their work, admit mistakes, and perform with upright honesty. Furthermore, they are experienced when it comes to working with contractors, know the ins and outs of the construction process, and have excellent rapport with regulatory agencies such as ODOT and the Ohio EPA.”

Fort Loramie Swanders-Road Bridge Replacement

Franklin Township, Shelby County, Ohio

The Fort Loramie-Swanders Road Bridge is a 28 foot wide, 92 foot long, three-span prestressed concrete box bridge that carries traffic over Plum Creek at the intersection of Thompson-Schiff Road. Each concrete abutment and pier is supported on capped piles. The bridge was designed with a 35 degree left front skew to align with Plum Creek below. Roadway pavement was raised on the west side of the bridge, removing a low spot. Choice One performed the topographical survey and bridge construction plans.
