Smith River bridge replacement, Crescent City

Smith River bridge replacement, Crescent City

The replacement of the Smith River Bridge at the South Fork Road, Crescent City (also named George Tryon Bridge) is a local infrastructure project initiated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and handed over contractor Flatiron West, Inc. The aim of the project is to replace an existing steel bridge, built in 1948.

For this project, Dextra supplied its Bartec rebar coupler solution. Bartec allows a convenient connection of rebars on large diameters from #4 to #18 (Imperial rebar sizes) and were used in columns and beams of the new replacement bridge. Bartec takes advantage of extended threads on rebars to splice them without the need of rotating any bar and without any extra further component: only a standard rebar coupler is required.

Additionally, Bartec Headed Bars were also supplied, replacing hook bars in congested reinforcement areas.

Bartec is a prequalified and authorized solution by CALTRANS (California Transportation Department) and has previously been tested and approved by the California Department of Transportation.
