PROJECT OVERVIEW

Delaware County Tillotson Overpass | Bridge Rehabilitation

DELAWARE COUNTY, IN—Also known as Delaware County Bridge No. 520, this structure serves as a gateway to Muncie, IN giving vehicles and trains uninterrupted access. It was originally constructed in 1975 and was experiencing heavy deterioration, particularly to the deck, superstructure, end and interior bent caps and some columns.

BLN's rehabilitation included the removal and replacement of the existing superstructure and approach slabs. Our Bridge engineers also eliminated all joints making the structure continuous, which provides protection again direct water infiltration and increases the life of the structure.
