NASA Scour Protection Design for Kennedy Space Center Bridges

Jones Edmunds performed an engineering study and provided design and construction-phase services to install scour protection at the Indian River bridges and Banana River bridge along SR 405, the Jay Jay Railroad Bridge, and the SR-3 Bridge over the Haulover Canal at Kennedy Space Center (KSC).

KSC’s bridges are approaching their life span, therefore, it was important to perform an in-depth field investigations and an engineering study, as well as hydraulic and scour analyses to determine anticipated scour that may impact the structural integrity of the bridge piles.

This project used an innovative marine mattress product that helped reduce anticipated scour and helped increase the life span of all four of the bridges.
