Project Value $500,000
Select Demo was contracted to perform the removal and disposal of the bridge superstructure and the partial removal and disposal of the existing concrete masonry of the Manville Avenue Bridge, which carries Manville Hill Road over the Blackstone River, the Blackstone River Bikeway and the Providence & Worcester Railroad spanning between Lincoln and Cumberland. The $11 million Rhode Island Department of Transportation project includes repairing the bridge’s piers and replacing its deteriorated deck and supporting steel beams. The bridge is structurally deficient and is posted at 10 tons, prohibiting the passage of many types of commercial trucks. It is 66 years old and carries approximately 8,000 vehicles per day.
