Kleinfelder provided the preliminary and final design and construction management for the Covered Bridge in Norridgewock, Maine. The bridge, named for a previous wooden structure at the site, was the only multi-span, concrete-tied arch bridge in the state, and thus a historic structure. Consequently, government mandated the investigation of multiple alternatives for its replacement.
As the client’s trusted advisor, Kleinfelder listened closely and responded with innovative solutions to design an impressive landmark structure, one of only two modern concrete-tied arch bridges in the U.S., to replace the previous historical bridge. Throughout the project, Kleinfelder involved all stakeholders, including the community, to ensure buy-in and satisfaction with the final design.
