Adams County Highway Department: Cannonball Rd/BNSF Railway

Quincy, IL

Klingner & Associates, P.C. provided design services to the Adams County Highway Department for the replacement of an existing ten (10) span timber bridge over the BNSF railway.  The project was federally funded.  Klingner also provided Phase II needs by preparing final plans, specifications, and estimates for the replacement 190’ three span composite beam bridge over a BNSF Railway.  One unique feature of the structure are the galvanized steel beams incorporated.  Klingner worked with the BNSF railway to meet their concerns and provide room for future track expansion.

In addition to the design of the structure, Klingner obtained the soil borings, prepared the soils report, prepared ROW plats, plan preparation, traffic management analysis, cost estimate and all other work relating for categorical exclusion. Construction cost: $1,220,000; Completed 2015.
