Bridge Description

The PGA Boulevard Bascule Bridge Rehabilitation Project in West Palm Beach, Florida, involved two existing three lane bridge structures that were side by side. The westbound bridge received minor structural modifications and repairs, while the eastbound bridge was systematically demolished down to water level and reconstructed. The demolition consisted of both eastbound bascule leaves, both bascule piers and both eastbound flanking spans. The PGA Blvd Bascule Bridge has four bascule leaves and five fixed approach spans.
