Torpee Creek Bridge Replacement

Carter, WI back to portfolio


This structure was to replace two 48” culverts under STH ‘32’. The resulting design was a 24-ft. wide by 8-ft. high, bottomless (3-sided) bridge supported on steel piling. The final structure was a buried single span bridge with approximately 3-4 ft. of overburden.

Additional design features included:

  • Decorative/Community Sensitive Design-Fieldstone Stream Signage
  • Improvements to Stream Morphology for Fish Passage
  • Provisions for Wildlife passage
  • Temporary bypass Roadway to avoid detour
  • Beam Guard
  • Temporary Diversion Channel to accommodate flow during construction
