The new Back River Bridge near Savannah, Georgia is scheduled to open in January 2016. This 60-year-old bridge has recently been featured in several news articles.
Qk4, Inc., provided the concept report, right-of-way plans, and final construction documents for the Back River Bridge. This project consisted of replacing the existing bridge with a new 3290-foot, 47 span pre-stressed concrete bridge along with reconfiguring the interchange with Hutchinson Island. The Back River Bridge connects Georgia and South Carolina via US17. The permitting process for the new bridge involved Department of Transportation and environmental agencies from both states, as well as the Charleston District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
