Cooper Contracting

Norfolk Southern – Bridge 151.4W Mount Carmel, IL 2015

The Situation

A 275 foot long timber bridge needed replacing and updating.

Why They Hired Cooper Contracting

With our reputation for working quickly, efficiently, and with safety foremost in mind, Cooper Contracting was the obvious choice for this project.

Our Solution

Cooper Contracting replaced the existing timber structure with a more modern (and safer) steel and concrete ballast deck bridge. We drove piling and constructed the substructure with very little disruption to daily train traffic, and replaced the full superstructure with only two (nonconsecutive) eight hour railroad outages.
