Description: Technical report
Navigation conditions through the existing U.S. Highway 82 bridge at Greenville, MS, are difficult and hazardous because of the alignment and velocities of the currents approaching the bridge. The U.S. Army Engineer District, Vicksburg, used physical hydraulic models to develop a channel realignment to improve navigation through the bridge. After construction of the channel realignment was underway, the Mississippi Department of Transportation advised the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that a new bridge was proposed at Greenville. The existing 1:150 scale semifixed bed model of Greenville Bridge Reach was used to determine if the proposed navigation span was properly located and to the necessary width. A modified design was recommended based on these model results.
