Maine Celebrates Sagadahoc Bridge Dedication


On August 31, 2000, the Maine Department of Transportation together with the communities of Bath and Woolwich will dedicate the Sagadahoc Bridge over the Kennebec River (Figs. 25 and 26). This $46.6 million structure, Maine DOT’s first design-build project, was designed and constructed by the Flatiron Structures/Figg Engineering Group team. The total bridge length of 906 meters (2,972 feet) includes a precast concrete segmental structure over the Kennebec River with a main span of 128 meters (420 feet). This is the longest precast concrete segmental box girder span in the U.S. The two-cell box girder superstructure has a typical deck width of 21 meters (69 feet) and carries four lanes and a sidewalk. Construction began in October 1997, and was completed on August 1, 2000, approximately one month ahead of schedule.
