Baker Awarded Design Contract On KTC Lake Barkley Bridge Project
Michael Baker Jr., Inc., an engineering unit of Michael Baker Corporation (NYSE MKT:BKR), has been awarded a final design contract for the Lake Barkley Bridge Crossing by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KTC). The two-year, $5.69 million contract, awarded due to an amendment of the existing contract, is for delivery of final bridge design services through 60 percent completion.
Specifically, Baker will provide final design services including project management, public involvement, project meetings, DBE coordination and arch bridge design. The new basket-handle, tied-arch Lake Barkley Bridge will carry U.S. Route 68 and Kentucky State Route 80 traffic across Lake Barkley in Trigg County, Kentucky, west of Cadiz, Kentucky, a seismically active region. The bridge is the only crossing on Lake Barkley and the Cumberland River, and is in a navigable waterway.
“This bridge is one of KTC’s key crossing projects and will replace a major functionally-obsolete bridge serving the very popular western Kentucky recreational areas,” said Baker’s James B. Williams, P.E., vice president and project manager. “We are extremely pleased with the contract award and look forward to the challenge and to working with our team partners and KTC on this crucial project for the region.”
