Transportation Brent Spence Bridge Rehabilitation

The Brent Spence Bridge that connects Cincinnati to Covington had significant fire damage to both the upper and lower deck due to a trucking accident. Crews worked around the clock to repair the bridge and reopened in just 41 days after the accident, with the project finishing under budget and ahead of schedule.

The project consisted of the replacement of roughly 200-feet of stringer beams and a section of concrete on the upper deck, replacing a section of concrete on the lower deck, and repairing electrical and drainage systems.
