SR-118; Bridge Replacement Over Sevier River

K&A recently completed the bridge design for replacement of the existing structure over the Sevier River.  The new prestressed concrete bridge will increase roadside safety and improve hydraulic performance while minimizing the roadway vertical profile impacts to provide additional freeboard and minimize roadway construction costs.  The new bridge will also be outside of the river ordinary high water mark, reducing work in the river and the associated costs and risks.
