Memorial Bridge
Posted December 16, 2019, by T. R. Smith (ditom [at] cvzoom [dot] net)

The Memorial Bridge was not replaced in 2010. This was a rehabilitation the deck and sidewalks were replaced but he original girders were modified to replace the suspended span elements ( pins and hangers ). The replacements were full depth girder pieces that made the bridge one continuous span from abutment to abutment. The girders are supported at the piers with new multirotational bearings.. A new expansion dam was placed at the north abutment. The piers and abutments are existing. The orinal bridge was fabricated by Bethlehem Steel Pittsburgh.
