In January of 2002, fire severly damaged the Rose Creek bridge, a ballasted deck timber trestle railroad structure that provides rail service to several carriers. Kleinfelder quickly mobilized and provided the project management, rehabilitation, design, and PS&E for a this 295-foot-long, 10-span precast/prestressed concrete box girder bridge.
Kleinfelder’s bridge design solution overcame all environmental constraints and maintained rail traffic throughout construction. The replacement bridge carries Coaster, Amtrak, and freight services across the environmentally sensitive Rose Creek. This bridge was selected as the “2002 Outstanding Project” by the San Diego Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
