Southpointe Crossings, a 150 acre project in the southern part of the City of Oxford, Ohio along U.S. 27, is owned and under development by 4-Leaf Development, LLC. Portions of the development are currently being sold for multi-family use (student housing), and a commercial piece with a C-store/gas station will be under construction soon. Lakewood Drive traverses the remaining 100 acres providing access to condominiums and single-family homes yet to be developed. Since a bridge was needed where the road crosses a stream, Bayer Becker, the project's engineer, and R.B. Jergens Contractors, Inc. (RBJC), the project's contractor, suggested Contech Engineered Solutions.

“4-Leaf wanted an attractive structure to compliment its project," stated Vic Roberts, P.E., Vice President with RBJC. "Once again, Contech delivered."

Contech met the project's needs with a 36' span x 13' rise CON/SPAN® B-Series Bridge System, 96' in length. The precast concrete system was selected as the best solution for its ability to adhere to the contractor's aggressive schedule. RBJC planned to set the entire structure in a single 12 hour day, and Contech Engineered Solutions helped schedule delivery of the structure accordingly.

Unfortunately, a late afternoon thunderstorm passed through the area during the installation altering the original plans. The result was a significant stream flow which submerged the foundations, prohibiting any further installation for the day. A Contech representative was onsite and acted quickly to halt any further deliveries from the trucking company for the day and rescheduled them for the next morning. The structure consisted of sixteen arch units, two headwalls and four wingwalls and was installed in just two days.

In the end, the project was a great solution for the site and 4-Leaf officials were pleased with the outcome.

“The CON/SPAN system was durable and available for a quick installation," concluded Jim Clawson, member of 4-Leaf. "We were pleased with the efficiency and the ability to complete the job as soon as possible despite the unexpected rainstorm. Due to the quick action of Contech's representative, the storm did not delay nor affect the schedule. If we need another bridge in the future, then we would definitely use Contech again."
