BB&A was retained to design a replacement deck for a nine-span, double track structure over the Beaver River. The structure crosses two tracks of the CSX Railroad as well as a local road. Constructed in 1925, the bridge had a ballasted deck constructed of cast-in-place concrete. After over 80 years in service, the original concrete deck deteriorated to the point where it had to be replaced.
