This project consisted of demolition and reconstruction of an existing 190 foot historic timber bridge. The Kempher Bridge served as the only access to residents on Kempher Road in St. Cloud Florida. As such the project was allowed only 30 days total closure time. The work was performed in conditions which included drastic water level changes to within inches of the work deck and water velocities exceeding 15 knots. The project was also complicated by tight space allowances for equipment.
