Subject: Temporary Bridge Support Type: Plan
Question Date: 2/7/2022 12:35:07 PM
After discussing with structural engineering firms they expressed constructability issue of Temporary girder support under the bridge deck. Please advice how VDOT would like to set up for temporary support under the bridge.  
Answer   Date: 2/16/2022 11:34:35 AM
Temporary support between Girders 2 & 3 needs to be installed from a lateral direction. Bearing devices such as pancake jacks along with shims may be used to create a tight fit. Temporary support between Girders 4 & 5 may be placed in a regular fashion. Contractor may propose alternative temporary support methods to the department for review and approval. Ultimately, it is the Contractor’s responsibility to determine his means and methods.  
Subject: TempGirderShoring Type: Plan
Question Date: 2/4/2022 10:42:28 AM
Plan sheet 3 of 22 has very little information of temporary support. Temporary support girder should be continuous from Abutment A to B? Or we can use several sections to joint together and rested on pier and abutment? Problem is if we put continuous girder there will be no way to remove it. No space to turn around under the bridge deck as well as over the water? Please provide specific way VDOT would like to set up and remove.  
Answer   Date: 2/15/2022 8:49:43 AM
The temporary support between Girders 2 & 3 may be simply supported. The temporary support between Girders 4 & 5 shall be continuous in order to let it deflect in a similar manner with the adjacent permanent girders. The temporary support may be installed permanently. If the Contractor prefers to install simply supported temporary supports between Girders 4 & 5, it is the Contractor’s responsibility to ensure that the support girder is securely in contact with the deck when the live load is applied during construction. The Contractor shall be responsible for the structural design and load rating if the Contractor chooses alternative means and methods. The design and load rating shall be submitted to the Department for review and documentation. All temporary support beams left in place permanently shall be coated as prescribed in Section 411 of VDOT Road and Bridge Specifications at no additional cost to the Department.
