CSX Ramp ReplacementCSX Ramp Replacement
Charleston, West Virginia

Preservation of a historic bridge waoremost in the minds of the deigner’s on the CSX Ramp Replacement in Charleston West Virginia. The owner and architect/engineer wanted the look to resemble that of the original bridge being replaced.

Eastern Vault Company fabricated the spread box beam members to accommodate cantilevered sidewalks and handrails. Stainless steel beveled sole and embedded bearing plates were utilized to meet site grade requirements and eliminate sloped piers and backwalls.
Choosing precast bridge beams for this project allowed for faster construction, long, clear spans, low maintenance, and an attractive appearance.
