Wilson Street Bridge over the Fox River in Batavia
The existing Wilson St Bridge over the Fox River was constructed in 1911. The City of Batavia wanted the new bridge to resemble the old bridge with a modern architectural and structural design. The $10 million project started in February 2007.
This three span post tensioned concrete slab deck varies from 2 ft to 4 ft thick at the piers with a cambered bottom to give an arched look to the spans. The superstructure is 240 ft long x 75 ft wide with four overhang outlooks at the end of each bridge pier. The main superstructure consists of 1,700 cy of concrete. Project was completed in the Spring of 2009.
