Existing Truss Location

 

New Truss Location

 

The project includes removing and replacing the existing truss Bridge that is along Campground Lane over the Duck River. 

The existing truss bridge is to be relocated to a location within the park.  Only the truss portion needs to be moved to the final location.  This would include any part of the steel structure above the decking, but the bearings would be needed to set the truss on the old roadway concrete.  TDOT Structures is determining the approximate weight of the truss bridge.  The length of the truss portion of the bridge is approximately 100’.

The Duck River is classified as an Exceptional Tennessee Water.

It has been determined by TDOT Environmental that the existing truss bridge is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.  Because this bridge replacement project is receiving federal funds, TDOT is required to comply with regulations contained within Section 4(f) of the U.S. DOT Act.  Compliance under Section 4(f) requires additional coordination with FHWA Legal and the Department of the Interior to ensure that there are no prudent and feasible alternatives to the Section 4(f) impact.  The proposed bridge replacement project qualifies as a Programmatic Bridge 4(f) which reduces the timeframe historic preservation needs to comply with the U.S. DOT Act. 

The typical section on the proposed bridge will consist of one (1) travel lane twelve (12) feet wide with three (3) foot shoulders in order to match the approach width on both sides. The proposed structure will have five (5) foot sidewalk on the north side of the road and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps on both sides of the structure.

The proposed alignment and grade for the replacement structure will remain the same as the existing structure. The proposed structure will have a ninety (90) degrees skew with the river channel. The current speed limit on Campground Lane is twenty-five (25) miles per hour (mph) and the proposed design speed will be thirty (30) mph.

The existing graded pull off area on the west side will be paved. The project will extend 150 feet from the structure to the west in order to taper the paved pull off area back into the existing roadway and extend 70 feet to the east.

The existing sewer pump station will need to be replaced and new sewer lines will be attached to the new structure.  The sewer will require temporary operations during removal of the existing bridge and construction of the proposed structure. 

Access to the existing campground is being maintained off of Country Club Drive and Country Club Drive will be resurfaced at the end of the project.
