Bridge Nos. 43 and 44 - Seven Hills Road over Pigeon Creek
This project involved reconstruction of a 1-mile section of Seven Hills Road, including Bridge Nos. 43 and 44. Construction operations included replacement of the 2 single-span bridges with a 200-foot, 3-span concrete I-beam bridge built on a 400-foot vertical curve with a 40-degree skew to the left over Pigeon Creek and a 20-foot precast concrete box culvert built on a 37-degree skew to the left with 14 feet of cover over an unnamed tributary to Pigeon Creek.
Road reconstruction consisted of relocating a quarter-mile section of the roadway and completely removing and replacing the old gravel pavement road bed with QC/QA HMA paving, widening the existing roadway, soil stabilization, and placement of gravel and asphalt drives. A new storm drainage system was added throughout the project to relieve drainage issues. The project also included a 20-acre mitigation site for reforestation, including grading, tree planting, seeding, vernal ponds, and nesting boxes for the Eastern Blue Bird. Work was performed for Warrick County in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Transportation Vincennes District. Construction costs were $3.45 million (Contract B-30979).
