PROJECT LOCATION: The project site has two bridges, the Spokane Street Swing Bridge (low-rise) and the West Seattle Bridge (high-rise), spanning over the West Duwamish Waterway. Leading up to and exiting each bridge are additional elevated structures. The Spokane Street Swing Bridge carries Southwest Spokane Street and the West Seattle Bridge carries the West Seattle Freeway.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The West Seattle Corridor Bridges Rehabilitation and
Strengthening project includes rehabilitation of the West Seattle Bridge and Spokane Street Swing Bridge, and miscellaneous major maintenance work to the elevated structures leading up to the existing bridges. This project will rehabilitate and strengthen both bridges for use by the public. The West Seattle Bridge is a multi-span twin cast-in-place concrete, post-tensioned segmental concrete box girder bridge. In 2020, the West Seattle Bridge was closed and partially rehabilitated (i.e., Phase I stabilization measures) with external post-tensioning and carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets in response to accelerated cracking observed on the bridge. This project will install additional external post-tensioning and both internal and external CFRP (i.e., Phase II rehabilitation measures), which will augment the Phase I stabilization measures installed in 2020. The Spokane Street Swing Bridge is a post-tensioned segmental cast-in-place concrete box
girder movable bridge. In 2020, cracking was observed on the Spokane Street Swing Bridge. Further assessment of the bridge was conducted to determine cause of the cracking and identify rehabilitation needs. The Spokane Street Swing Bridge rehabilitation will include installation of CRFP on the bridge box girder.
The work for this project package will include concrete deck preparation and overlay.
