Steinhauer Bridge

Cost:C$51 million
Client:Government of Alberta Ministry of Transportation
Location:Fort McMurray, Alberta

Flatiron rehabilitated the Steinhauer Bridge over the Athabasca River in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. Flatiron demolished the bridge superstructure-the deck, girders and bearings-and retrofitted the bridge's pier caps. Bridge capacity was increased from two to three lanes.

The Steinhauer Bridge carries northbound traffic over the Athabasca River and is parallel to the Athabasca River Bridge, another Flatiron project completed in 2011. Flatiron detoured traffic onto the new Athabasca River Bridge during construction on the Steinhauer Bridge.

Flatiron also build the second half of the nearby Franklin Avenue Bridge over the river. The first half of the bridge was built under the Athabasca River Bridge contract.
