Mishawaka Avenue Bridge

Mishawaka, Indiana

This project was a total reconstruction of the earth filled concrete arch bridge, including restoration of the structure to resemble the original bridge that was constructed in 1925 and rehabilitated in 1987. The bridge is a 4 span structure with a clear roadway width of 30’- 0”.

The project also involved construction of a 3-sided pedestrian tunnel under Mishawaka Avenue to serve as a connection of the bike/pedestrian facilities located north and south of the roadway. Arch strengthening, waterproofing of the existing arch, placement of grade beams and pneumatically placed mortar to the underside of the arch is all part of the reconstruction. The existing fill was removed and replaced and a new 10” reinforced concrete pavement was placed.

DLZ provided all aspects of construction inspection for St. Joseph County on this contract, including concrete and soils testing as well as record keeping, utilizing INDOT’s site manager software.
