Goodrich Bridge

Lufkin, Texas
  • Scour caused undermining of the piers leading to partial collapse of the Goodrich Bridge in Lufkin, Texas, for the Union Pacific Railroad.


  • Bridgefarmer designed and provided construction oversight for this CEC Engineering “Excellence Award”-winning project for an emergency repair to a UPRR bridge over the Trinity River.



Bridgefarmer provided a design scheme which caused minimal interruption to the rail traffic. Using specialized technology to remove and replace existing steel through girders which significantly reduced the construction time and disruption to the UPRR traffic, the through-plate girder change-out was completed in just two days.
