Rebuilding the Ohio Turnpike bridge over the Maumee River was part of the Ohio Turnpike’s third lane construction. The lane occupies the existing median to provide the additional traffic capacity needed for this heavily-traveled toll highway.
The twin, 1,450-long Maumee River spans were the second longest bridges on the 241-mile turnpike. To widen this superstructure, Mosser rehabilitated all the concrete substructures on both bridges, built ten new median piers, widened the abutments on each end of the bridges, and replaced the entire superstructure on both bridges. Over 4.25 miles of girders, 1,500 cross frames, 15,500 bolts, 11,200 cubic yards of concrete and over 1.6 million pounds of reinforced steel were used on the decks.
Mosser received a Build Ohio Award from the Associated General Contractors of Ohio as well as a Move Ohio Award from the Ohio Contractors Association for this project.
