Patterson Road Bridge over Lehman / Birk Ditch
St. Joseph County
St. Joseph County, Indiana
The Patterson Road Bridge over Lehman was noted to be failing and in critical condition, the need for a rapid structure replacement was quickly recognized. After swiftly examining the possible replacement structure options and associated costs, LFA recommended that a three-sided precast concrete structure be selected for this rural site in southeastern St. Joseph County near Wyatt, Indiana. By selecting a precast concrete structure and utilizing precast concrete wingwalls, the time of construction was greatly shortened, which aided in keeping construction costs low while minimizing impact to the traveling public. LFA coordinated with area utilities and landowners, including a residential drive in the immediate northwest quadrant, to develop documents that minimized impacts to all affected parties. This team effort resulted in a successful project for St. Joseph County as well as the residents.
