All-American Bridge

Formerly known as the “Y” Bridge, the All-America Bridge has four lanes with two lanes northbound and two lanes southbound that split into a one-way pair. The City of Akron, through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), funded the project, and the Ohio Department of Transportation rehabilitated the All-America Bridge, which included:

  • Resurfacing 23,500 square yards of bridge deck
  • Hydro-demolition removal of the wearing course
  • Repair of concrete deck and parapet walls
  • Overlay placement of concrete deck
  • Installation of 10,400 lineal feet of Safety Fence

GSI served as the Construction Manager for the City of Akron as their authorized representative in managing and administering the construction contract. GSI was responsible for maintaining the safety and efficiency of traffic during the project, as well as, the safety of road workers.

This project required a complete shutdown of one direction of traffic, requiring the use of “dust free” detour routes for the detoured direction at all times. The contractor was responsible for maintaining communication and access with all related school and emergency vehicles throughout the detour periods. All conflicting signs were covered and new temporary detour signs, message boards (updated continuously throughout the project), and barricades were posted in compliance with the OMUTCD.
