    Rehabilitation of the Franklin Avenue Bridge

    Abstract
    The Franklin Avenue Bridge, built 1919-1923, is a historic, open-spandrel concrete arch bridge that crosses the Mississippi River in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Nearly a century of exposure to a harsh northern climate led to advanced deterioration of its concrete elements. WJE performed an investigation and condition assessment, and then designed repairs for the bridge as part of a team led by HNTB. WJE’s investigation included a vast array of forensic testing techniques, structural analysis, service life prediction, and life cycle cost analyses. The original concrete elements were rehabilitated using historically-sensitive, durable concrete repair methods, supplemented with targeted cathodic protection measures. Construction was completed in 2017. The project was recently featured with a two-part series in ACI’s Concrete International (June and August 2017). Mr. Johnson and Dr. Lawler, lead authors and investigators, will give an overview of the project from initial investigation through current construction.
