Hawkins removed and replaced eight separate bridges over two projects. Existing bridges were timber and replaced with H-pile supported precast structures that varied in lengths from 22 feet up to 100 feet. Pile driving was coordinated around train traffic and each bridge superstructure was completely replaced in a one-day track outage. Construction duration for all eight bridges was 5 months.
