Located in North Carolina since 1999, ms consultants has two exciting announcements from the Raleigh, North Carolina office. ms Raleigh is continuing to expand its transportation services with a Roadway Design Group, and the group recently won three NCDOT projects!
Highlights of the ms Raleigh transportation group service offerings include:
- Traffic engineering
- Bridge Design
- Structural Engineering
- Construction Administration/Management
Visit the NCDOT Prequalifications page for a full list of ms' prequalifications.
Currently, our engineers are beginning design services for three bridge rehabilitation projects for NCDOT in the Western Region of North Carolina. All three bridges are no longer functional and each redesign comes with its own challenge. Read more details on these three upcoming bridge replacements below.
Bridge 12 over Hogsed Creek on S.R. 1538
Location: Brevard, North Carolina
Estimated Construction Cost: $400,000
Construction Letting Date: July 18, 2017
Details: Existing one-span bridge will be replaced by a triple-cell concrete box culvert.
Challenge: Located in an area subject to flooding, careful hydraulic and structure selection is required.
Bridge 51 over Floyds Creek on S.R. 2113
Location: Forest City, North Carolina
Estimated Construction Cost: $1,100,000
Construction Letting Date: February 21, 2017
Details: Existing three-span bridge will be replaced with a concrete-cored slab bridge.
Challenge: Nearby power transmission poles and lines require careful consideration of the roadway profile to avoid excessive utility relocation costs.
Bridge 21 over Henry Fork River on S.R. 1803
Location: Hickory, North Carolina
Estimated Construction Cost: $1,150,000
Construction Letting Date: January 17, 2017
Details: Existing five-span bridge will be replaced by a three-span concrete box beam bridge.
Challenge: Significant scour was found with the current structure. Scour occurs when fast flowing water creates voids around the foundation, compromising the integrity of the bridge. To mitigate issues in the new bridge, the bridge will be designed to limit the number of substructures in the water.
