Bridge Renovation of Ohio State Route 513 over I-70
Guernsey County, Ohio
Categorized by the state as requiring the most complex level of design, the Ohio State Route 513 bridge over I-70 in Guernsey County was a model of intricate geometry. When the bridge’s superstructure needed replacement, Woolpert was selected to prepare the complicated structural design plans. Incorporating horizontal and vertical curves, skews, dog-leg beams and super-elevations, the renovation design called for the replacement of the bridge deck and abutments and elevating vertical clearances. These changes accommodated for the increase in oversized vehicles and interstate commercial traffic. As a result of careful maintenance of traffic planning, all roads remained open throughout the reconstruction process.
