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
