Constructed in 1910 as part of the Barge Canal, this structure is both a vehicular bridge and an integral part of the lock design.
Second Movable Dam Gets Exodermic Deck With Lightweight, High Performance Concrete
TVGA were the consultants on the project, and were able to turn around plans in just six weeks from their first emergency inspection of the structure, based on their experience with the Lock E-9 project. Cianbro Corporation was the low bidder, completing the work on schedule in the late spring of 2001. Greulich Bridge Products supplied the grid portion of the Exodermic deck.
