L.B. Foster awarded $15m steel grid deck and railing contract
Those works are for the international Peace Bridge Rehabilitation Project. L.B. Foster will provide 194,000 SF of deck panels and 17,400 LF of railing for the rehabilitation of the historic bridge that spans the Niagara River from Buffalo, New York to Fort Erie, Ontario.
The existing rebar reinforced deck slab and bridge railing on the Peace Bridge is being replaced with L.B. Foster’s steel grid reinforced concrete deck panels and railing systems.
The design specifies that the railing anchor bolts penetrate the new bridge decking, requiring the railing and deck panel installation to be coordinated. L.B. Foster’s engineering department will be detailing both the grid deck panels and bridge railing to ensure critical component matchup during installation.
The grid material will be fabricated in L.B. Foster's plant in Bedford, PA.
L.B. Foster steel grid decking is engineered to exact specifications to expedite deck replacement and minimize traffic congestion during construction. ■
