PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS: FOLSOM DAM BYPASS BRIDGE
Completion of the Folsom Dam Bridge restored a much needed route for the city of Folsom, CA. The road over the dam was closed to public traffic after September 11, 2001, prompting the need for a new bridge over the American River.
McNary Bergeron & Associates provided construction engineering services to Kiewit Pacific for the cast-in-place segmental bridge. These services included construction analysis, geometry control, and shop drawings for the 970 ft long structure.
