2012 Treasure Island Bridge
American Construction Company (ACC) was awarded a contract to construct a bridge to connect Treasure Island to the mainland near Grapeview, Washington. The project was performed for the residents of Treasure Island in order to maintain access for personal and commercial use.
ACC disposed of and removed an existing timber bridge in order before replacing the bridge with an 800' concrete and steel structure that spanned the Puget Sound. This project included the installation of 2,076 linear feet of piling as well as 8,800 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete. A challenge of the project was to work around the shallow waterway. Pile driving towards the ends of the bridge proved challenging as the ACC team had to time the tides to complete the job. Despite this hurdle, the ACC team were up to the task and accomplished the project with no issues.
ACC worked well with both the owner's group and the engineering team. The Treasure Island Bridge was a signature project for all involved and ACC is proud to have completely met the needs of the client.
