Bridges get emergency repairs
Unique materials are being modeled on this project to extend the life of the bridges, which were shedding pieces of concrete, said John Kelly, DOTD district 5 administrator.
“Up to this point, small chunks of concrete had fallen on grass, but not on the highway itself,” Kelly said. “We were concerned that left unattended, it would get worse and start falling out there; so we led an emergency project to try to prevent loose concrete from falling.”
The reason the concrete is falling is not known, said Kelly, who added this is the only such case in the area of which he is aware.
