I-90 Loop Missouri River Bridge Type Study
South Dakota DOT, Chamberlain, South Dakota
POITRA Visual provided photo-realistic simulations for the Jacobs Engineering Rehabilitation or Replacement Study of the multi-span I-90 Loop crossing of the Missouri River in Chamberlain, South Dakota for the South Dakota Department of Transportation. Design Visualization was needed to communicate design alternatives during an active public participation program.
POITRA made a photo survey of the site in South Dakota concentrating on views that would illustrate the view impact to residents and best describe the proposed alternatives. The alternates included a steel I-girder structure, and two steel truss alternates, one of which was designed to utilized the existing piers.
Simplified 3D model truss members were accurately sized and configured according to design plans.
