Royal Park Bridge

Royal Park Bridge (Palm Beach, FL)

Type: Twin Double Leaf Trunnion Bascule
Location: Palm Beach, FL
Client: Florida Department of Transportation

This project included the replacement of an existing twin double leaf bascule span with a new twin double leaf bascule span.  As part of the project, the movable spans of the existing structure were relocated on a new foundation to provide a temporary bridge during construction of the new bridge.  The new bridge machinery consists of conventional power transmission for the span drive machinery and hydraulically operated span locks.  SBE personnel provided supervision of the mechanical engineering and inspection team, on-site inspection of the machinery installation, punch lists of deficient conditions, responses to RFI’s and resolution of mechanical issues throughout construction.
