SR 3016 Over Two Lick Creek Project Awarded 2023 Outstanding Highway Engineering Award from ASHE Mid Allegheny

Lochner’s Pittsburgh Team received the 2023 Outstanding Highway Engineering Award in the $2.5M or less category from ASHE Mid-Allegheny for their work on the SR 3016 Over Two Lick Creek bridge replacement project.

Located in Center Township, Indiana County Pennsylvania, the SR 3016 bridge replacement over Two Lick Creek on Jacksonville Road was an important infrastructure project that connected residents north of Homer City to downtown, parks, and the Hoodlebug Trailhead just south of the bridge. Lochner was selected to design a new bridge to replace the old 105-foot, 2-span rolled steel beam bridge. The new design features a 145-foot, 2-span continuous prestressed concrete bridge with integral abutments and a wall pier on rock foundation. The project also included roadway reconstruction, drainage and guiderail upgrades, and a thorough analysis of traffic control alternatives.

From the start of preliminary engineering, our project delivery focused on mitigating project challenges such as maintaining connectivity of adjacent residences/neighborhoods, navigating hydraulic constraints, and coordinating impacts to numerous utilities. To provide pedestrian connectivity during construction, Lochner included provisions for a 150-foot temporary ACROW bridge located immediately downstream. The new bridge was constructed in 7 months using traditional construction methods.

Congratulations to the project team for their quality engineering on this project!
