Project Description:

Modern Building Company contracted with California State University Chico to replace two bridges on campus. 

 

Phase II of the project is to remove an existing footbridge, and replace it with a vehicle bridge to allow for emergency vehicles to access the north east side of campus. This phase will begin in May 2016 after the school year ends.

Phase II Update: In May of 2016, Modern crews headed back out to Chico State to prepare the foundations for the arrival of the bridge. On July 19th, 2016 a 500-ton crane was brought in by crews from Maxim Crane, to lift the 100,000-pound vehicle bridge and set it in place.

Phase I of the project is the replacement of the Gus Manolis Bridge, originally built in 1961. In Sept. 2014, a large tree fell on the bridge causing it to collapse.Modern Building Company will replace the bridge, as well as all of the ADA compliant walkways, handrails, stairways, and ramps.

Phase I Update: The bridge was constructed in Greeley Colorado, and trucked to Chico. Modern crews prepared the foundation, by drilling 35′ caissons, and building new abutments. On Sept. 19th, 2015 the 72 ft, 12,800 lb bridge was set in place. A 175 ton hydraulic crane was brought in, and with the help of crews from Maxim Crane, and McPherson Crane, the bridge was lifted up over the trees and lowered down into place. The bridge deck and walkways were poured in concrete, and the finishing touches were completed in October of 2015.
