Location: St. Paul, MN – Hoffman Bridge-Spanning the Mississippi River
Completed: November, 2017
Owner: Union Pacific Railroad
Contractor: JF Brennan
Union Pacific contacted PVS Structures after a pier was damaged by a barge on the Mississippi River, in St. Paul, MN. Upon collaboration, an accelerated steel design and fabrication plan was developed. Innovative braced frame assemblies were fabricated that included a new steel cap and corresponding steel grillages. PVS Structures fabrication included a seven day per week expedited fabrication cycle that delivered emergency spans ahead of projected schedule. The steel installation “fits like a glove” and was performed by contractor JF Brennan.
What UPRR Construction is saying about PVS Structures: PVS Structures reacted with an expedited timeline, after the initial schedule, upon request at five days ahead of original timeline. The quality of product was at the highest level I have seen on any project; let alone an Emergency Order. The deliveries where timely and trouble free.
Project notification of deliveries and contact by drivers was excellent
