Cass Street Bridge Mechanical/Electrical Rehabilitation

The Cass Street Bridge is a 1927 historic steel structure, a double-span bascule bridge that is an important crossing over navigable water of the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. The bridge is built with structural steel members to support traffic loads. Due to the age and corrosion of the structural steel members, structural repair and painting work was done in 2007. The structural rehabilitation work has extended the bridge’s useful life by 10 – 15 years. However, electrical and mechanical equipment & their parts are old and sometimes unavailable to do repair and are obsolete.

This project will repair or replace:

  • Programmable Logic Controller ( PLC )
  • Drive Motor and cabinets
  • Conduit and wiring associated with a generator, automatic transfer switch, safety interlock, etc.
  • Auxiliary drive bevel gear bushing, span drive motor, span lock & pinion, span lock brake & bushings
  • Emergency Drive bevel gear, Shaft bushing, bearing & couplings, live load shoe, etc.
