In an effort to modernize and expand its facilities, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has been undergoing major expansion efforts. One such effort is the Service Road Bridge over World Way West and is a component of the Taxiway C13 improvements and Taxiway D extension. To accommodate the existing World Way West, the proposed Service Road Bridge will be two lanes, approximately 70 feet long and 46 feet wide. To separate the World Way roadway from the Taxiway and the Service Road, World Way West was lowered and retaining walls were constructed along both sides of the roadway through grade separation.
VCA Engineers, Incorporated (VCA) addressed the design of the proposed Service Road Bridge by following Caltrans Bridge Design Specifications (BDS), seismic design criteria, and other various bridge design manuals. VCA prepared final design construction documents and 65% unchecked bridge plans based on a two-span slab bridge design.
