The new Liberty-Laurel Overpass in Beaumont, Texas, is destined to be a unique landmark. The superstructure of the 1,340-foot-long concrete bridge consists of 15 support bents, each with four columns topped by a three-arch cap. Architectural features include Roman-arch detailing with the look of stone masonry and cast-in-place concrete guardrails with multiple arched windows. The Texas Department of Transportation rail design replicates a style popular on bridges in the 1930s, yet meets modern-day safety standards. STEEL AND WOOD FORMS COMBINED General contractor APAC-Texas Inc. achieved construction economy on this project by renting standard steel forms, purchasing a few custom steel parts, and adding wood and polystyrene-foam inserts to produce architectural detail. The contractor also maximized reuse of the forms, especially for railing construction. Guardrails were cast in standard steel forms with wooden blockouts attached to create the detail of the arched openings. APAC used each from assembly 20 to 30 times to cast 3,822 lineal feet of decorative railing.
