Type of Job:Lateral Slide Bride Cost: $14.6 Million Duration: 2013-2016 Location: San Antonio, TX Client: Texas Department of Transportation
The LP345/Medical Project (Fred/Med) successfully executed the first lateral bridge slide in TxDOT's 97 year history. The Fred / Med Bridge replaced the on grade intersection of Fredericksburg Road and Medical Center, which is the main thoroughfare into San Antonio’s Medical Center. Due to the excessive congestion at this intersection and the ambulance traffic, the construction time of this bridge construction was critical. Per the original contract terms TSC had 14 days to close the intersection, remove the pavement, excavate down to grade, set the substructure, install the beams, and cast the deck. After more than a year of planning the Bridge Slide, at 12:01 am on a Friday TSC closed the intersection of Fred / Med and by rush hour the following Monday morning the new bridge was in place. We had successfully slid the 4 Million pound bridge approximately 185 feet into place flawlessly. In addition to this being the first lateral bridge slide in TxDOT history; at the time, the 185 feet of lateral movement was one of the longest lateral bridge slides performed in the United States.
