Based on the deterioration of the existing Johns Pass Bridges substructure conditions and the frequency of ship impact causing damage to the existing fender system, two new mid-level bascule bridges were constructed in conjunction with widening of the existing 60' channel width to 100'. The profiles were raised to the maximum extent possible while staying within the existing R/W and maintaining compliance with ADA requirements. The bridge foundations consisted of approximately 200 drilled shafts to depths of up to 120 feet.
