Officials with the Ohio River Bridges Project just recently released the latest batch of aerial photos, showing the progress of the bridge as of June.

Michael McKay, a spokesman for the project and associate account manager with Louisville-based Guthrie/Mayes Public Relations, stated that the bulk of the work on the bridge, which remains unnamed, is scheduled to be finished in December.

McKay said that the crew is be spending the rest of the summer building the structural steel span connecting the two sides over the river by fall.

McKay also stated that the cable-stays, which support the weight of the bridge, also are being installed, and that installation will continue throughout the summer. Concrete deck panels also will be installed on the main span of the bridge this summer.

According to McKay crews completed blasting for the tunnels, on the Kentucky side in May, and the concrete work was finished in June. Allowing for work to occur on the tunnel’s ventilation, lighting, traffic-monitoring and fire-suppression systems to start. On the Indiana side, paving also should be completed by summer, and crews are working on improving a shared-use path to the bridge.

Choosing the Right Concrete Thermocouple for Your Jobsite

What Is a Concrete Thermocouple?  In layman’s terms, a thermocouple is an electric device that measures temperature, essentially making it a type of thermometer. That being said, it is not the kind of thermometer you would use to measure your body temperature when running a fever, or to deduce what the atmospheric weather is today, or as an in-built mechanism within your refrigerators and heaters. So, what exactly sets a concrete thermometer apart?  It takes two metals to form a thermocouple, both of which are wires that are welded, crimped, or twisted together, and It takes two metals to form a thermocouple, both of which are…

The Importance of Monitoring Temperature Differentials in Mass Concrete

Closely monitoring concrete temperatures is critical for ensuring proper strength development of concrete structures, regardless of their application or size. However, when it comes to mass concrete structures, temperature differentials also need to be considered due to the risk of a large difference between the relatively hot internal temperature and cool surface temperature. If a too-large temperature differential occurs, the surface of mass concrete will start cracking, which is detrimental to its durability and the length of its service life. What is Mass Concrete? Mass concrete…
