Romano Vineyard Way Bridge
Quonset Business Park, North Kingstown, RI
Owner: Quonset Development Corporation
As part of a major capital improvement program at the Quonset Business Park, the Quonset Development Corporation (QDC) constructed a new internal roadway called Romano Vineyard Way. The purpose of this new road is to connect different parts of the park while providing a grade separation at the internal rail line.
Opened in 2011, this bridge carries the new Romano Vineyard Way over Davisville Road and Seaview Railroad. The 84-foot span consists of five prestressed concrete bulb tee beams with a composite concrete deck and bituminous wearing surface. The bridge also includes sidewalks, parapets and pvc-coated chain link fencing on both sides of road. Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining walls with formliner finish were utilized for the embankment slopes.
