Due to pile degradation and damage from barge traffic, the bridge over Choctawhatchee Bay in Florida had to be replaced. Despite a 2 1/2-month construction delay when a barge rammed the adjacent bridge being replaced, the precast concrete girder was completed on time. Prime contractor Guy F. Atkinson Co. made up for the delay with a reusable steel bridge deck forming system that allowed placement of almost 57 feet per work day.
