Apollo Blvd - CSI

Owner: FDOT District 5          Location: Brevard County

Horizon performed the CSI for the Apollo Blvd Bridge over the Eau Gallie River requiring construction access in sensitive wetland area. The bridge was redesigned but the bridge limits and footprint were kept identical to the permitted bridge.  The number of spans was changed from 8 to 12 and the size of the girders was reduced to resolve some constructability issues.  The foundations of the bridge were optimized to drive the piles deeper in order to provide increased capacity and eliminate any battered piles.  As a result, the total number of piles within the Eau Gallie River was significantly reduced.
