BNSF Railway Bridge 380.12 over I-235, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Speaker: Jay Hyland, Vice President, TranSystems
Program: Please join us for a presentation that will cover planning, design and construction challenges for the replacement of BNSF Bridge 380.12 over busy I-235 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For construction of the additional lanes of traffic of I-235 to proceed, the existing two-80’ span, skewed thru-plate girder BNSF bridge had to be removed and replaced with two 275’ thru-truss spans. To minimize disruption to the 49 daily trains, the new bridge was constructed on an offset alignment. To minimize disruption to I-235 vehicular traffic (115,000 daily vehicles), the new spans were assembled offsite and transported on Self-Propelled Modular Transports (SPMT’s) down the highway during a planned weekend outage. Finally, a short closure of the BNSF track was utilized to shift the existing track onto the new track alignment and bridge.
