The scope of work for Pegasus Link Constructors is to replace the I-30 & I-35E bridges crossing the Trinity River, to upgrade the outdated geometry of the major interchange, and construct additional lanes to add capacity
The Fluor-led partnership erected the first haunch girder on the Interstate 35 crossing of the Trinity River in the summer of 2013 as part of the Horseshoe project. The beam is one component of the 1,000-foot spliced-girder unit across the river.
There are a total of six bridges of this type that will have the same span length. Beam installation was self-performed using two cranes owned by Fluor and provided to PLC. Fluor is also providing a third large lattice boom crane to the project.
The design-build project will require the erection of 3,390 girders in the expansion and the addition of several new bridges and roadways along I-30 and I-35E, including a new signature bridge, the Margaret McDermott Bridge, over I-30.
