You've read the article; now learn the rest of the story. Take a deeper look into “Executing Structural Repairs at Coast Guard Base Miami Beach," featured in the 2021 May-June issue of TME.
In 2016, signs of settlement were discovered in the Base Miami Beach entrance bridge, a 75+ year old structure with an extensive repair history. Executing a major repair to the bridge faced a host of complications, however. The bridge is only 22-ft wide, and except for brief interruptions, a traffic lane capable of accommodating 10-ft wide vehicular traffic had to be maintained throughout the project. Second, the Coast Guard lacked a real property interest to any laydown, staging, or construction work area at the head of the bridge. Third, construction on a neighboring ferry terminal and parking garage was scheduled to commence in 2019 and continue into 2020. The two major projects would likely be competing for the same laydown and work areas, making coordination between federal and commercial entities imperative. To overcome these challenges, careful construction phasing and coordination with multiple state and private entities was required. Read the original article published in TME.
