Sidney Lanier Bridge

Georgia DOT

Project Summary

TranSystems provides cable stay bridge services statewide for GDOT, including inspections, maintenance and repair recommendations, engineering studies, and a review of the effects of theoretical conditions, such as wind and rain events.  The Sidney Lanier Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge on US 17 / SR 25 with a main span of 1,250 feet and two side spans of 623 feet each. Opened in 2003, the cable-stayed bridge is the longest spanning bridge in the state of Georgia and allows larger ships to enter the port of Brunswick. The "eyes on" inspection of all faces of the bridge included the bridge deck, inside and outside of the towers, the substructure, and the exterior faces of the cables. TranSystems prepared construction plans for rehabilitation repairs, performed a site visit of the structure and provided evaluation, design and construction plans, and construction services for the rehabilitation project.
