Navy Drive over San Joaquin River
Port of Stockton, Stockton, California
The Navy Drive over San Joaquin River Bridge Replacement for the Port of Stockton included replacing an aging steel swing bridge truss to better accommodate increasing large truck traffic. The new concrete bridge also preserved river access for large load water traffic by utilizing a removable lightweight steel center span.
The new bridge was not located on the original alignment to allow construction of the new structure while the existing bridge still carried the traffic. The new location made it necessary to modify the alignment of Navy Drive. A photosimulation was used to illustrate this new connector road in context with the existing built features of the area and comparable to the existing alignment.
POITRA Visual also produced a ground view photosimulation illustrating the new bridge structure and the removal of the old bridge structure.
