Annual Inspections Scheduled For Grant Bridge
Chillicothe (Monday, October 28, 2013) – As part of its regular maintenance program, the U.S. Grant Bridge in Scioto County will undergo a series of inspections early next month, requiring lane assignment changes and restrictions.
Beginning Monday, November 4, and continuing through Friday, November 8, crews from Burgess and Niple, Inc., will perform physical inspections of the cables and towers during daytime, business hours each day as weather permits.
Throughout the week, the bridge will be open to traffic; however, two-way traffic will be diverted via either the north or southbound lane and shoulder of the bridge.
Along with other regularly scheduled inspections, these annual tests and inspections are part of the state’s annual bridge inspection, maintenance and research program for all bridges maintained by ODOT.
