The bridge was built in 1967. Due to age, the bearings connecting the piers to the bridge deck are worn out and need to be replaced. The bearings are designed to allow controlled movement of the bridge deck, thereby reducing the stress of movement on bridge components. With the bearings being worn and not operating effectively, the structural integrity of the bridge is compromised which in turn poses a safety risk to road users if not addressed.
Rehabilitation of Hancock Bridge involving replacement of bearings.
Total cost of proposed project is $2,616,719
