Title: Hydrologic/Hydraulic Study for the Design of a Bridge over the Rio YagŁez and Quebrada Lavat in MayagŁez
Problem and Research Objectives
The Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority (PRHTA) is planning the construction of two bridges, one over the Rio YagŁez and another over the Quebrada Lavat in MayagŁez. The purpose of this construction is to alleviate the transit on the Comerio Avenue in the sector. The Engineering Firm Guillermety Ortiz and Associates contracted the PRWRERI to do a Hydrological/Hydraulic study to determine the dimensions of the proposed bridges considering the effects of the tides that occur in the zone without afecting the flooding conditions in the area.
The PRWRERI will offer professional services under conract with Guillermety Ortiz and Associates. These services will include the gathering of data uring field visits, hydrologic and hydraulic studies, surveying, local scour studies, and the coordination of the final design.
