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.
