NDOR - Stockyards Bridge

  • Construction started in November of 2012 with Hawkins Construction as the Prime Contractor for the NDOR.

  • Major work included the installation of (2) temporary traffic signal intersections, (2) permanent traffic signal intersections with new controllers/cabinets, (2600’) electrical circuits, (12) bridge mounted street lighting units, (24) under-deck lighting units, (3800’) 4” Fiberglass conduit, and (2) cantilever sign structures.

  • The work site conditions were difficult due to the bridge going over an active railroad yard and mainline tracks for UPRR. Coordination was required to be maintained at all times during the installation of the 4” fiberglass conduit system on the underside of the bridge. Protections were always in place with RR flaggers, track protection, fall arrest systems, and related safety equipment. Due to the close communication with NDOR, UPRR, and Hawkins Construction, the project was completed ahead of schedule with no issues.
