Project Description

SH 92 Stengel’s Hill

Hotchkiss, Colorado

Start Date: August 2014
End Date: June 2016
Owner: Colorado Dept. of Transportation

montrose_coloradoHamilton Construction teamed with Wilson & Company to design and build a grade separation for SH 92 over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) 15 miles east of Delta, CO. The project involved design and construction of 1.6 miles of new highway including a new 560-foot-long bridge over the UPRR. The bridge is four spans of 63-inch prestressed girders, precast deck panels, a cast-in-place deck, drilled shaft interior bents, and H-pile end bents. The project scope also includes 11,000 square feet of MSE walls, 180,000 cubic yards of roadway embankment/excavation, asphalt paving, and a reinforced concrete box culvert. Our team worked closely with the owner, the UPRR, and the local irrigation and utility districts to make sure all of the appropriate permits were in place and did not impact the project completion.
