Feeling the Heat: Crews Race to Repair Span in 18 Days
By: Irwin Rapoport – CEG CORRESPONDENT POSTED ON CONSTRUCTIONEQUIPMENTQUIDE.COM
Cooperation was essential to repairing the damage quickly and properly, and the first meeting with Shelly & Sands occurred 15 minutes after the contract was awarded
Early in the morning of July 1, a fire caused by a tanker truck carrying ethanol exploded under a bridge on Interstate 70 on the outerbelt going around Columbus, Ohio. This required emergency work to be done to repair the bridge and adjacent ramp — a $1.186 million Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) contract that went to Shelly & Sands Inc. (S&S) a day after the incident.
The bridge repair work was done in 18 days and reopened to traffic on July 21.
