The below photos were taken from the Allegheny River Railroad Project. Headed up by Mike Bianco as the Project Manager and Jack Leukhardt as the Superintendent, this project included the full reconstruction of an approximately 580’ railroad bridge. The existing bridge stood on 48 timber bents supported at ground level by timber mats and was in dire need of replacement. This structure was replaced with a 36 bent, all weathering steel, structure supported by four steel piles driven to an approximate 70’ depth. The installation of the steel bracing and stringers was also all performed by Swank’s crews. The Allegheny River Project was very unique to Swank as it did not include a single yard of concrete on the entire job. This bridge showcases the precise and high quality work of Swank’s pile driving group.
