This project is owned by Crawford County and is located in the City of Meadville, PA, Crawford County.
It consists of a bridge replacement. The new structure is a two span Composite Prestressed Concrete PA Bulb-Tee Beam Bridge over French Creek, with an approximate length of 229 feet. This project also involved the dismantling of the existing structure for bridge preservation reasons. Mekis Construction had an integral part in the negotiations that took place after the project was awarded to coordinate the preservation plan for one of only two Whipple Truss Bridges left in the world. The foundations for the bridge have over 1 mile of H-Piles. This project also included asphalt paving, drainage, guide rail, signing, lighting, landscaping, and traffic signals.
This project was completed in May 2016.
