Abstract

The purpose of this project was to evaluate an abandoned railroad bridge over Route 2 in Leominster, MA, and design structural improvements for Stantec Inc. Three redesign options were considered: repair of the existing structure, superstructure replacement, and full replacement. These options were evaluated based on aesthetics, material cost, constructability, and future impacts. The final recommendation selected was the full replacement. This design was further developed, including a demolition and traffic plan.
