Horner & Shifrin designed a low water crossing replacement structure, County Road 167 over Black Creek, near the City of Des Arc, MO. The new bridge consists of 3-spans of precast reinforced concrete C-beams with a 2-inch asphalt wearing surface for a total length of around 100 feet. Piers and abutments are founded on steel h-piles. The bridge accommodates two lanes of traffic and feature steel thrie beam guardrails. The new bridge not only raises but also lengthens the existing structure, greatly reducing road closures due to flooding.
