Firm to manage and perform inspection services for Robert Craig Memorial and Port Clinton Bridges
MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Modjeski and Masters, a nationwide leader in the design, inspection, and rehabilitation of all bridge types, including long-span and movable structures, today announced its selection for two bridge inspection projects with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT).
Modjeski and Masters was selected as the primary consultant for two bascule bridges in Ohio—Robert Craig Memorial Bridge and Port Clinton Bridge—where they will be responsible for managing and performing inspections for each bridge. Modjeski and Masters will begin work on the bridges in February, and the projects are scheduled to be completed by July 2020.
The Port Clinton Bridge, first constructed in 1933, is a heavily decorated bascule bridge and one of only five highway bascule bridges in Ohio built from 1920 through 1956. The Robert Craig Memorial Bridge, built in 1956, is a four-lane bascule bridge that spans the Maumee River downstream from Toledo, Oh.
"We look forward to beginning the in-depth inspection on these two bascule bridges. These projects signal our renewed efforts in Ohio, where we've completed numerous projects as a subcontractor," said Mike Britt, President and CEO of Modjeski and Masters. "We're excited to return to the area and foster a strong relationship with the state through our deep understanding of movable bridges. We've seen the impact our work can have, and we look forward to improving the service life and reliability of these bridges for the Ohio community."
