2013-2016 Connecticut DOT Biennial Bridge Inspection and Evaluation


HAKS is providing biennial inspection and evaluation services on highway bridges throughout Connecticut for the 2013-2016 period for the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT). The project consists of routine and in-depth inspections of approximately 400 complex and moderately complex bridges, including mechanical and electrical inspections of movable bridges and inspection of approximately 300 sign supports. Services also include quality assurance of bridge inspections performed by others and load rating computations in accordance with the current AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation.

We are performing 100% hands-on inspection of fracture-critical members and fatigue-prone details and non-destructive testing, as required. Critical conditions are addressed through the issuance of Priority A and B memoranda. Teams maintain lane closures to allow for ConnDOT to provide emergency repairs.

Project Highlights

  • Ongoing semi-final and inventory inspections on the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge (“Q” Bridge) and other structures in the I-95/I-91 interchange in New Haven. The “Q” Bridge is the first extradosed bridge in the United States. HAKS is also providing input into the bridge manual for this structure.
  • Performed concrete coring and testing on a deteriorated bridge deck in Westport.
  • Performed load rating computations for the tied-arch Arrigoni Bridge.
