Quesnell Bridge Girder Strengthening
After the City of Edmonton decided to widen Quesnell Bridge from a four lane highway to a six lane highway, a bridge analysis completed by consulting engineers concluded that the existing girders were insufficient in flexural and shear capacities and did not meet the current loading conditions set forth in Edmonton due to the expansion of lanes. Fyfe Company, LCC offered their services to provide an innovative and cost-effective solution to meet these requirements.
The Tyfo® SCH 41 System was installed longitudinally along the bottom side of the girders to increase their flexural capacity, and was installed transversely along the sides to increase their overall shear capacity.
The Quesnell Bridge project installation was completed by Fibrwrap Construction in a cost-effective manner ahead of schedule.
