New Brunswick Route No. 126 (Kouchibouguac River Bridge No. 5) Realignment, Right-of-Way and Staged Construction Techniques

This paper will discuss the innovative approach the New Brunswick Department of Transportation (NBDOT) implemented on the road realignment construction project of Route #126 at the Kouchibouguac River located near Rogersville, New Brunswick. Improved vertical geometry associated with the new highway design for this section of Route #126 required the removal of an existing cast-in-place bridge, a significant increase in road grade elevation at the Kouchibouguac River, maintaining two lanes of traffic by means of three temporary detours over the existing and new bridge structures during the phases of construction, all within the confines of the narrow road right-of-way. For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD number E211395.
