Replacement of Cottrell Bridge Number 193 in Westerly, RI

GM2 completed the design of the replacement Cottrell Bridge No. 193, which carries Westerly-Bradford Road (RI 91) over McGowan Brook in Westerly, RI. The new bridge is a single-span composite tub girder structure consisting of pile supported precast concrete footings and walls.

This project also involved the partial demolition of the existing bridge, temporary support of excavations, replacement of 6” gas line, dewatering, guardrails, a beaver enclosure fence, maintenance and protection of traffic, signage, clearing, as well as erosion and sediment control.
