ECI Makes 2 Calendars with Ryegate Culvert Project
ECI’s East Rygate Culvert project is highlighted on both the Acrow Bridge and the EIV Technical Services 2016 calendars. The project involves the design-build construction of a 32-ft-wide (clear span) cast-in-place concrete arch culvert within a 70-ft-deep excavation under the Washington County Railroad (WACR) and 60-ft-deep excavation under US Route 5 in East Ryegate, Vermont. The excavation is supported with steel sheetpiles braced with hollow bar soil nails and tiebacks. The excavation extends to about 13 feet below the adjacent Connecticut River.
Acrow Bridge is the supplier of both bridges used to span over the sheetpile braced excavation. The rail bridge is a 70-ft span and the highway bridge is an 80-ft span. The highway bridge is on a 7% grade. Both bridges were installed by crane-assist launch and are supported on temporary pile foundations.
