California Parks & Recreation – Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Big Sur, CA
Construction of 150 feet of emergency Bridge, abutments, and traffic signals Pfeiffer camp ground was closed due to a washed out Bridge. Sharp completed the project in time for the season opening Memorial Day Weekend.
Entire project completed in 21 days. SHARP was awarded a Special Commendation by California State Parks and the State of California.
Demolish and remove remaining structure not swept away by flooding. Repair tops of both concrete abutments. Modify abutments to allow for seismic attachments. Locate new bridge and approaches. Saw cut existing asphalt approaches to excavate and re-grade. Co-ordinate shipping and receiving with assembly to allow for construction within significant space and time constraints. Supply assemble and install new Bailey bridge across the Big Sur river. Create custom hand rails to permit safe use by pedestrians and cyclists.
Attach water and utility lines to the new bridge to provide service across the river. Supply and install new traffic signal system to control the single lane bridge. Supply and install 150 tons of HMA to pave the new bridge approaches.
The site is remote and complicated by protected wildlife/plants, live waterway, and dangerous height considerations. Provide a Storm Water Prevention Plan and supply and install all BMPs to control storm water run-off during the project.
