Project: Kershaw, SC - Realigned Old River Bridge over Bolton Branch Creek
Contract Value - $1,509,408
Owner - SCDOT
Project Manager - Brandon Clontz, Justin Timmons
Superintendent - Shawn Davis
Dellinger’s task was to replace two existing bridges in Kershaw County, SC. The first, Bridge at Old River Road was a roadway realignment to replace a deteriorating concrete bridge with a three span 120ft flat slab bridge. This structure was skewed and had a horizontal and vertical curve. The second bridge at Chestnut Ferry Road was to replace a concrete bridge with a 100ft flat slab bridge.
Dellinger was subcontracted by C Ray Miles Construction on this project. Dellinger began construction on the Old River Road bridge on August of 2017. The Old River Road Bridge design posed a challenge with the skewed bridge that also included a vertical and horizontal curve. The bridge was three forty-foot spans with sidewalk on both sides as well. Despite the challenges of the design and having to custom build all falsework for the three spans, Shawn Davis and his talented crew had a successful completion of the Old River Road realignment.
After successfully completing the first bridge, Shawn’s crew began construction on Chestnut Ferry Road Bridge. This bridge is a three-span bridge with two 30ft spans and one 40ft hand formed span. Using this span configuration allowed for utilization of deck pans on the 30ft spans for an efficient construction method. Although Chestnut Ferry Road does not have the horizontal and vertical curve it does share the same decorative hand formed barrier wall. Shawn’s crew is currently setting the last span of deck pans and construction will be concluding on the Chestnut Ferry Road Bridge in the near future.
Dellinger, Inc. would like to thank Shawn Davis and the hard-working team members that make up his crew as well as all our subcontractors and suppliers that assisted in making this project a success.
