Trumbull provided bridge reconstruction for the Norfolk Southern Bridge PC-0.97, built in 1902, which carries four tracks over Federal Street in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The four tracks come from two railroad lines – two tracks for the Fort Wayne Line and two tracks for the Conemaugh Line. The bridge consists of three spans over the city’s right of way: two sidewalk spans of 16’ each, and a center span of 54’ over Federal Street (which consists of two northbound and two southbound lanes). These spans are all of the through plate girder (TPG) type, and the floor system is a built-up pan floor with a ballasted deck. Trumbull handled utility coordination, removal and reinstallation of railroad tracks, clearing and grubbing, installation of erosion control, installation and testing of micro-piles, concrete repair, installation of production micro-piles and construction of new piers.
