Revitalizing Historic Bridges

When faced with the need for replacement or repair of a historic bridge, those overseeing the initiative encounter a myriad of considerations, spanning from environmental impacts to updated design standards. Access Limited specializes in the comprehensive realm of bridge rehabilitation, offering expertise in navigating the complexities inherent in these projects.

A notable example of our expertise unfolded with the upgrade of a historic bridge in California, dating back to 1939, necessitating a complete replacement to align with contemporary safety and seismic standards. The project posed unique challenges, perched on cliffhanging slopes.

We undertook a series of tasks, including the demolition of the existing bridge footings and abutments, grading and excavation for new footings, and the installation of rockfall fences. These operations were carried out on slopes ranging from 50 to 60 degrees. Through meticulous planning and precise execution, our spider excavators were lifted by cranes and strategically positioned beneath the bridge's slope. Safely dismantling all concrete elements, we efficiently completed the project, finishing five days ahead of the scheduled timeline.

Addressing Challenges in Historic Bridge Repair

Repairing historic bridges presents a myriad of challenges, including limited access for modern construction equipment and environmental concerns, especially in preservation areas. The intricate masonry techniques of bygone eras add another layer of complexity, requiring a blend of ancient and modern methodologies for effective restoration.

At Access Limited, we understand the nuances of historic bridge rehabilitation. Our team, consisting of skilled masons, operators, and design engineers, excels in restoring bridge abutments, wing walls, and various other facets of bridge repair. Leveraging modern technology, we ensure swift and efficient repairs, significantly reducing downtime and allowing these historic structures to reopen to visitors in a matter of days or weeks, rather than months.

Rockfall Fences as a Rockfall Solution

Rockfall containment is crucial for managing risks associated with unstable slopes and rock formations. Catch fences, made of high-tensile mesh, and anchored with rock bolts, efficiently prevent falling rocks, offering a cost-effective and visually unobtrusive solution. Our team provides tailored catch fences as part of our rockfall mitigation services, ensuring safe and economical solutions for diverse challenges.

Our skilled engineers and rock remediation technicians specialize in designing and installing customized catch fences to meet each customer's unique needs. Leveraging our expertise and attention to detail, we offer secure and economical solutions for various rockfall and slope stabilization challenges.
