Project Description

Covered Bridge in Glen Carbon

Covered Bridge in Glen Carbon - TWM, Inc.
  • LOCATION: Glen Carbon, IL

  • CLIENT: Village of Glen Carbon

TWM provided preliminary design and construction engineering services for the replacement of this historical landmark, working to alleviate concerns that the new bridge match the historical one in style.  TWM designed a replica of the original cover on a pre-cast pre-stressed deck beam bridge, which included an ADA-compliant sidewalk along one side.  TWM limited the bridge length in order to accommodate existing driveways and side streets by using MSE retaining walls in place of the existing closed abutments.  The completed bridge has been extremely popular with the local community, not only in its modern adequacies but also in its faithfulness in character to the landmark it replaced.
