BELL acted as the General Contractor on this project to organize team meetings, subcontractor meetings, Safety Plans, railroad interface, traffic control, scheduling, sequencing, construction charge directives and proposal request, submittal review and processing, request for information validation, updates, and quality control. This project consisted of the construction of a concrete box beam bridge on Demonbreun Street over the CSX Railroad and 11th Avenue, including grading, drainage, and paving. The bridge is a 774′ x 58′ wide 54″ x 58″ box beam bridge with span lengths of 114′, 123.75′, 2 @ 130′, 2 @ 100′, and 76′. From its locomotive patterned concrete supports, to its railing design atop the parapet wall, it has brought the memory of old railroad days back to downtown Nashville. It was difficult working through and over an active CSX railroad yard, but we still completed this project five months ahead of schedule.
