In one of Northern Virginia’s busiest, most complicated and high traffic volume intersections, the superstructure of the EB Wilson Boulevard Bridge over Route 50 was demolished, removed, and replaced in a single weekend to minimize impact to the traveling public and local business community. The design utilized ABC methodology including three preconstructed composite units erected at the site using very early strength latex concrete deck closure pours providing the required cure time, strength and durability.

The Wellsburg Bridge is an 830-foot span basket-handle network tied arch connecting Wellsburg, WV and Brilliant, OH across the Ohio River. This arch span is being constructed using an Accelerated Bridge Construction method where the main span is built at a site roughly 1 mile upstream along the Ohio River and will be floated into its permanent position using a system of self-jacking falsework towers and barges.
