Bridge Replacement: Knickerbocker Bridge# 2438 over the Back River and located 1.70 miles easterly of the Boothbay Harbor town line.
This project consisted of replacing an eight span timber bridge that was build in 1930 with an eight span, 540 foot long, structure consisting of hybrid-composite (HC) beams and concrete capped pile bent piers. The existing bridge was in poor condition due to deterioration of the timber support pilings. HC beams are an innovative new technology consisting of a fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) shell encapsulating and protecting more conventional steel and concrete bridge materials. HC beams were an ideal solution for this coastal location due to the corrosion protection provided by composite materials.
