Dauberman Road Bridge over Welch Creek
The Dauberman Road Bridge over Welch Creek (built in 1975) supports a two-lane roadway (one northbound lane and one southbound lane) along with tapered 4’ to 5’ wide shoulders. The previous superstructure was a deteriorating precast-pre-stressed concrete deck beams with a 3” bituminous overlay.
The improvements replaced the existing bridge with tapered 4’ to 5’ wide shoulders. The existing abutments were salvaged as they only required spot repairs. The project also included installation of concrete parapets, guardrail, HMA pavement, and storm sewer. Since the project was located within the 100 year floodplain of Welch Creek, and the existing roadside ditches did not provide enough compensatory storage to account for the fill necessary to complete the improvements, they were reconstructed in accordance with the Kane County Stormwater Ordinance.
