The City of Suffolk is planning for a bridge replacement and minor roadway work to Elwood Road Bridge (Rte. 613) over Kingsale Swamp. The existing bridge is a single span steel girder superstructure with timber deck supported on timber substructure spanning approximately 31 ft. which makes it structurally and geometrically deficient. Currently, the structure restricts the passage of emergency vehicles and farm equipment.
The new structure will be constructed from prestressed concrete piles and a voided slab span; the anticipated life cycle of the new bridge will be 75 years.
