Project Name: Bridge Replacement of Bridge File 9269
Location: Mountain View, AB
Description: Replacement of the single span, 6.5 m long treated timber bridge with a double 1800 mm diameter corrugated steel pipe


Roseke Engineering Ltd. helped Alberta Transportation to maintain the integrity of the Mountain View – Leavitt – Aetna irrigation canal, which supplies the Mountain View Irrigation District to the east from the Belly River to the west.

The treated timber bridge was nearing the end of its life span with significant rot in the abutments and timber stringers.

The replacement project went very smoothly and all stakeholders were satisfied.  The crossing was the only access for the landowner to the west, and Roseke Engineering was able to ensure access through the construction site on well maintained roads, a highly cost effective traffic accommodation measure for small sites.

The west side of the excavation incurred significant sloughing and very poor quality material that would have compromised the structural integrity of the culverts.  This material was removed and replaced with better gravel.

Our bridge engineering division has performed hundreds of culvert installation projects:

Bernie Roseke, P.Eng., PMP is the founder and president of Roseke Engineering Ltd.  He has 20 years experience in the design of rural bridges, culverts, and drainage structures, primarily for Counties, M.D.’s and Alberta Transportation.

Levi Ober, P.L.(Eng.) is our bridge manager and responsible for delivering bridge, culvert and erosion control projects on time and budget.  He has 14 years experience in the assessment, design and construction supervision experience on County, M.D. and Alberta Transportation bridge projects.  He has designed every type of standard bridge and bridge sized culvert, and he is a class B bridge inspector.
