TRRA is the owner of the Merchants Railroad Bridge in St. Louis, Missouri. The Merchants Bridge consists of three 518’ through-truss spans built in 1890 over the Mississippi River and approach spans on both the Illinois and Missouri sides of the Bridge. TRRA intends to replace the existing main spans with new trusses built to current standards for load ratings and structural clearances (the “Project”). The Project also includes the structural encasement of the existing piers with piles drilled into the bedrock below the river. The Project also includes encasing the East approach on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River in a cellular concrete fill supported by structural culverts to allow flooding. New track will be installed throughout the Project limits. The Project site is an in-service Freight and Passenger Railroad Bridge and, as a result, a safe working and operating environment is the TRRA’s top priority. The Construction Engineer position is of limited duration, from approximately Summer 2019 until Fall 2022 while construction of the Project is being completed. There may be the possibility of regular employment opportunities with TRRA after the Project is completed.
