Last Beam Placed for the SH 34
North Sulphur River Bridge

Upper Trinity Regional Water District team members, Flatiron Constructors and Lamb-Star Engineering celebrated as the last beam for the SH 34 North Sulphur River bridge was laid on August 11th.
“In roughly 12 months the team has gone from grassland to this milestone of setting the final beam,” said Project Manager Josh Pfingst with Flatiron Constructors. “This impressive milestone includes 360 drilled shafts, 144 columns, 48 caps and 353 TX-54 concrete girders. Most importantly, it was achieved safely and on schedule.”
Flatiron and Lamb-Star were joined onsite for the milestone by key team members of Upper Trinity as well as Huitt-Zollars, Inc, Fugro and Texas First Rentals. Attendees took the opportunity to sign their names on the last of the 120-foot-long beams before cheering as it was placed onto the completed bridge structure and enjoying a cookout together.
Work continues to pour the bridge’s deck and finish a concrete traffic rail. Construction crews also continue to place columns and beams on the nearby Merrill Creek Bridge, which at 600 feet long is only about a tenth as long as the North Sulphur River one.

Delivering Water from Lake Ralph Hall

In addition to active construction on the dam and reservoir, Upper Trinity is actively working to break ground on the pipeline, pump station and balancing reservoir to move the water from Lake Ralph Hall. The District already owns the land for the pump station and balancing reservoir. The pipeline route has been surveyed and the process of acquiring easements is underway, with approximately 60% acquired to date.

Design on all the conveyance components is progressing as well, with 30% of the pipeline/balancing reservoir and over half of the pump station designed. Starting this fall the construction managers for the conveyance part of the project will begin requesting bids for early work and key materials and equipment for the project.
