The Foxburg Bridge, located in Foxburg Pennsylvania, was constructed in 1921.
This 87-year-old, three span truss bridge was to have a rail system on top of the bridge, while auto traffic traveled through the truss section under the train. This was an extremely heavy bridge. Approximately 60 pounds of RDX linear shape charges were used to sever the steel.
Preparation and loading was expedited by being able to access the old bridge from a manlift placed on the adjacent new bridge. Excellent coordination with the contractor provided a smooth flow of progress keeping everything on schedule.
This project was completed, in a joint effort with the contractor, by a three-member blast crew.
