HERNANDO DE SOTO BRIDGE

MEMPHIS, TN

SSR also provided unmanned aircraft system (UAS) services that allowed the departments to see progress through videos and pictures.

A major crack in a critical steel beam was discovered on the Hernando de Soto Bridge on I-40 over the Mississippi River on May 11, 2021, and the bridge was immediately closed to traffic. TDOT and ARDOT instantly assembled engineering teams and secured a contractor to remediate the damaged beam. SSR was secured through an existing on-call contract and provided CEI services both night and day for the repair work. The critical schedule ensured that the repairs were completed in just 81 days.

the heart of Nashville, TN. SSR is providing construction engineering inspection services on this $152 million-dollar project. The interstate is being widened to three lanes throughout its entire seven-mile span through the removal of an existing median separating the east and west bound lanes. The project also includes lighting and ITS improvements, ramp widening and upgrades, and new noise walls along the route. The project is expected to be completed in 2020.

segment of Wolf River Boulevard consisted of approximately two miles of four lane roadway with shoulders, two bridges, five oversized box culverts to encourage critter crossing, one pedestrian underpass, and two new traffic signalized intersections. This segment runs from Kimbrough Road to Farmington Boulevard, with signalization at each terminus. CEI services were provided to the City of Germantown in accordance with Appendix C, Roadway and Bridge Field Construction Procedures, in the TDOT “Local Government Guidelines for the Management of Federal and State Funded Transportation Projects.”

CENTRAL AVENUE

MEMPHIS, TN Central Avenue is an east-west collector that stretches through the University of Memphis, cutting a 2,500-space parking lot off from the rest of the campus. This 1,700-foot project begins at Deloach Street and ends at Zach Curlin Street. SSR provided full survey and design services for this roadway which included grading, drainage, paving, signals, signing, marking, erosion control, and traffic control. The driving force behind this project was pedestrian safety. To that end a landscaped median, fencing to channel pedestrians to crosswalks, a widened sidewalk, and landscaped grass strip have been utilized to separate motorists and travelers as much as possible.

I-40/I-240 INTERCHANGE

CARTER COUNTY, TN

The original Gap Creek Road – also known as Highway 362 – was a narrow and curvy roadway that ran through Carter County in East Tennessee and into the Cherokee National Forest. Used by many as a bypass around heavier traffic areas, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) noticed an up-kick in traffic flow and, unfortunately, accidents in recent years. As the original roadway raised safety concerns with local and state officials, planning for an improved route began and SSR was contracted to provide construction engineering inspection services for the nearly $44 million project.

FOY SHAW PARKWAY

CRESTVIEW, FL SSR is providing CEI services for the Foy Shaw Parkway project which involves the construction of a new two-lane arterial roadway connecting Bob Sikes Airport (CEW) with US Highway 90 East in Crestview, FL. The proposed alignment begins at the existing intersection of US-90 (SR10 / East James Lee Boulevard) and Cavalier Drive and continues north on a new alignment for approximately 0.80 miles to the intersection of John Givens Road and Skyline Drive. The new roadway will consist of a rural typical section with two 12-foot travel lanes and six-foot shoulders within a new 150-foot wide corridor. The addition of an eastbound left-turn lane as well as a westbound right-turn lane along US-90 is also included.

WILLIAMSON MEDICAL CENTER TRAFFIC SIGNAL

The Williamson Medical Center campus, located between I-65 and Carothers Parkway just north of Murfreesboro Road (SR-96) in Franklin, TN, expanded with a new 122,000 SF medical office building. In addition to providing site design services, SSR was contracted to perform a traffic impact analysis for this new facility. The project consisted of widening both roadways to accommodate the additional lane and modify the existing signal. The project required coordination with TDOT as the improvements occurred on a state route and impacted the existing I-65 interchange.

MEMPHIS, TN Following the completion of a Transportation Planning Report (TPR), SSR was hired to improve 3,000 LF of Plough-Airways Boulevard south of Brooks Road, and 3,000 LF along Winchester Road east of the existing at-grade Plough Boulevard intersection with tie-ins to the south and west of the intersection. The improvement will provide a grade-separated interchange to replace the existing Plough-Airways / Winchester at-grade intersection while maintaining direct connectors between Plough Boulevard and the Memphis Shelby County International Airport. SSR is responsible for full design, including three bridges, on the project.

PLOUGH BOULEVARD

Veterans Parkway is a vital link to the success of the West Tennessee Regional Business Center in Millington, Tennessee. The new road forms an eastern bypass around the city to connect the business center with US-51 to the west and indirectly with Paul Barret Parkway (future I-269) to the south. It also provides access to the Canadian National Railroad and the Millington Jetport within the business park. The original Veterans Parkway was only about a third-mile long, extending north into the business park from Navy Road.

WOLF RIVER PEDESTRIAN

VETERANS PARKWAY

AsMEMPHIS,BRIDGETNpartofthe extension of the Wolf River Boulevard Connector, the City of Germantown took the opportunity to extend their greenway system through the Wolf River bottomlands. The new section of the trail runs from just east of Kimbrough Road to Cameron Brown Park. The project includes two trailheads and five pedestrian bridges and is situated between the new roadway and the Wolf River. The section contains a 1.4-mile long asphalt trail system running west to east, connecting the existing greenway trail with residential areas in the eastern portion of Germantown.

MEADE LAKE ROAD BRIDGE NO. 1 ATOKA, TN SSR assisted the Town of Atoka with the replacement of two bridges along Meade Lake Road located on an unnamed tributary of Big Branch Creek. In addition to the aging structure, both bridges also lost their approach sections during high rain events in recent years. The original spans of each bridge were replaced and designed to facilitate traffic with or without asphalt, as the Town had plans to repave the entire section of Meade Lake Road at a later date. The span was increased slightly on both bridges to allow for better hydraulic flow of the creek beneath. Bridge #1 was completed in 2018 and Bridge #2 was completed in 2019.

AIRLINE ROAD OVER HALL CREEK BRIDGE ARLINGTON, TN The town of Arlington, TN sits off I-40 at just east of Memphis, TN. As traffic along the I-40 corridor has increased over the years, so has the number of visitors to the downtown area of Arlington. This project included the replacement of an existing two lane bridge over Hall Creek with a five lane bridge and the horizontal and vertical realignment of the approaches to accommodate the new structure. The design also included the hydraulic analysis necessary to document a “No-Rise” condition. The newly expanded bridge now serves as a safe gateway for passengers to access the Town of Arlington.

The new section of roadway was widened to three lanes with curb and gutter to accommodate the increased traffic flow. CEI services assured the project was completed in accordance with TDOT’s specifications and requirements. SSR also provided traffic signal systems for three intersections within the 1.3mile stretch of Concord Road.

BRENTWOOD, TN To accommodate the increased traffic flow, the TDOT opted to widen the 1.3-mile section of Concord Road. It was previously a twolane highway with high traffic volume as well as several cross streets and traffic was being restricted by left-turning movements.
