         Improving Safety and Mobility with a Grade Separation in Wellington, Ohio

         The village of Wellington, Ohio, faced a large problem for a small town. The railroad tracks divided the town and

         separated emergency services from parts of their extensive service areas.  The village received a grant to eliminate the

         high-speed railroad crossing on SR 58 to provide safe access and abolish delay times for the traveling public and village

         safety forces. Through partnering efforts and construction value engineering, the design was modified to use drilled

         shafts and lagging for shoring to eliminate vibration from driving sheet piles close to the historic district and modify the

         pump station wet well design using auger cast piles to reduce construction costs.

         Construction of the Lewis and Clark Cable-stayed Bridge over the Ohio River

         Procured under a public private partnership contract (P3) the main river spans of the $763 million Ohio River Bridges East

         End Crossing feature a 2,280-ft long three-span symmetrical steel composite cable-stayed bridge with a center span of

         1,200 feet and side spans of 540 feet each. The bridge opened to traffic on December 18, 2016 and it is officially named

         the Lewis and Clark Bridge. This presentation will cover the unique aspects of the bridge’s construction including the

         streamlined steel composite deck, the convex curved diamond configuration towers supporting the bridge, the stay-

         cable anchorages, and the construction sequencing.
