Veterans Memorial Bridge

//Veterans Memorial Bridge

Reed & Reed, Inc. replaces one of Maine’s busiest bridges, The Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, over the Fore River between the Cities of Portland and South Portland. This bridge is a precast segmental bridge that is 1,610 ft long and supported by six piers in the river spaced at 250 feet, with shorter approach spans on each end. The pier foundations consist of concrete tremmie seals, footings, and pier shafts supported by 22 inch steel pipe pile driven to ledge. The superstructure is a pair of parrallel precast trapezoidal box sections in varying dimensions and weighing up to 70 tons a piece. The distinctive and innovative bridge design allowed for construction without the need for any full or partial closures of the existing bridge and connecting roadways, and saved the State significant cost. Reed & Reed completed this bridge project in December of 2012.
