Reed & Reed Inc. Tackles Dual Bridge Demolition, Replacement Project

www.foleyengines.com

w

Reed & Reed Inc., Woolwich, Maine, hit the ground running in January to remove and replace two steel bridges called Cumberland Mills West and Cumberland Mills East. The bridges, in the heart of this mill area, carry a very high volume of traffic. Crews have been on-site since Jan. 9 for the project, which was bid on Nov. 9 at an estimated cost of just under $5 million. “The scope [of the project] includes the removal of two bridges. This includes demolishing the existing concrete sidewalks, railings, deck and abutments,” said Senior Project Manager Ted Clark of Reed & Reed Inc. “We have to remove the steel beams, 10 in total, that weigh over 200,000 pounds, all of which will be recycled. Over 1,000 cubic yards of concrete will be demolished and hauled off to be recycled.” To deflect heavy traffic while the old bridges come down, the general contractor must implement other routes for cars to commute and travel with no interruption of bridge work. “Reed & Reed will have to design and construct a traffic detour that allows us to demolish and construct the two new bridges and not interrupt the traffic flow. This approach is particularly important on such a busy, arterial road that carries over 16,000 vehicles per day,” added Clark. Clark said that each bridge abutment will be built through the use of a cofferdam that allows Reed & Reed to de-water and eliminate the difficulty of working under water.

The scope of the project includes the removal of two bridges. This includes demolishing the existing concrete sidewalks, railings, deck and abutments.

Powerscreen Connecticut Expands, Changes Name

100 Tons of Steel The two new bridges will have six steel girders each; there will be more than 200,000 lbs. (90,718 kg) of steel that will form the superstructure portion of the bridges. see BrIdgES page 4

Bernadette and Seamus Sheelan (C), the founders of Powerscreen New England, with their two sons, Cathal and Ronan Sheelan (far L and far R, respectively) share in the company’s responsibilities.

Powerscreen Connecticut Inc. has just gotten a little bigger, and with that growth — spurred by the purchase of a competitor — the company is changing its name to Powerscreen New England. A family business run by founder Seamus Sheelan, his wife, Bernadette, and his son, Cathal, Powerscreen Connecticut was founded in 1997 and since that time has been the authorized distributor of Powerscreen products and BL Pegson products in Connecticut and Rhode Island. The company has been recognized as the BL Pegson Dealer of the Year on see POWErSCrEEN page 10

State Outlines Maine Summer Highway Agenda AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) Maine transportation officials say the summer highway improvement agenda includes nearly $56 million for 36 new highway construction projects. In addition, $37 million will go to bridges, with $25 million for 15 new bridge construction projects, and nearly $10 million for three existing bridge projects awaiting bidding. Officials say that this summer and fall, construction crews throughout the state will be digging, paving and building. Some of the projects will include Interstate 295 bridge deck work in Portland, the Falmouth-Portland Martins Point Bridge, road construction on Route 1 in Van Buren, highway paving on I-95 in Newburgh-Plymouth, paving on Route 1 in Wells and paving on Route 9 and Route 202 in UnityDixmont. Officials say the projects will employ hundreds of workers.

Company’s Eight Decades of Experience DISPLAY ADS/ Enable It to Conquer Unusual Problems CLASSIFIEDS BRIDGES from page 4

Reed & Reed was founded in 1928 as a heavy civil contract that specialized in bridge construction. Over the years and through four generations of family leadership the company has grown, leveraging its strengths of people, technical knowledge and equipment. Today, the company constructs wind energy and marine projects in addition to its core bridge work. Currently, it employs more than 200 people. “What truly stands out at Reed & Reed are its familydriven culture and its people. Our field people are experienced, knowledgeable and creative as to their approach to work,” added Parker. “These are the people who form and place concrete, perform critical lifts with large cranes and put these projects together. Most of the work we do with our own forces and is not subcontracted out to others. “There is a loyalty that has been formed over the years resulting in many employees staying with Reed & Reed for 20, 30 and over 40 years. One rarely observes this phenomenon in today’s work world. Our construction field staff is simply the best,” he said. One of the company’s most unusual projects occurred last year as a result of Hurricane Irene. The storm caused flooding that collapsed two bridges near Carrabassett Valley Academy and the entrance to

Sugarloaf on Route 27. This state road provides a critical access that links Quebec, northern logging and the Sugarloaf Ski Resort with the southern part of the state. The MDOT selected Reed & Reed over several other contractors based on its ability to execute. Its mission and commitment included designing and constructing two temporary bridges in seven days. “We took one day to plan, one day to mobilize and five days to construct,” said Parker. “The two temporary bridges were opened at 8 p.m. on the seventh day. This effort was gigantic. Over 50 truckloads were required to move cranes, pile hammers, equipment, temporary bridge materials and traffic control devices.” More than 35 Reed & Reed staff members were involved, as well as several subcontractors and suppliers. “The two permanent replacement bridges were designed and constructed within 93 days, which is amazing,” added Parker “The Maine Department of Transportation played a critical role in the design and approval process and deserves a lot of credit for the success of the project.” For more information, visit reed-reed.com or call 207/443-9747.
