Eastbound Innerbelt Bridge Construction Contract Group 2 (CCG2)

The Cleveland Innerbelt Modernization Plan is a multi-year transportation program undertaken by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). The goal is to improve interstate travel along I-71, I-77 and I-90 through Downtown Cleveland. As part of that effort, ODOT began construction of the new eastbound and westbound spans of the Innerbelt Bridge. Known as the George V. Voinovich Bridge, the 3,918-foot bridge is the largest replacement effort in Ohio history.

S&ME was a member of the Independent Quality Firm (IQF) team providing Quality Assurance services for the eastbound phase.  The project involved the demolition of the existing bridge and construction of a new eastbound bridge. The Design Build Team was responsible for design, finance, and construction of the bridge. The IQF was responsible for verifying and documenting all quality related data including: design, testing, inspection, geotechnical investigations, environmental activities, maintenance of traffic plans, and surveys. S&ME provided concrete testing, compaction testing, observation of driven piling installation, bolt torque testing, inspection and testing of MSE wall construction, document management, statistical analysis of testing data, and laboratory testing of construction materials.
