Crowne Plaza Columbus North

Forge valuable connections, learn about new technology and innovations, and explore state of the art products

Sponsored by the County Engineers Association of Ohio, the 2019 Ohio Bridge Conference will have nearly 300 attendees from around the state – county engineers, bridge engineers from both the private and public sectors, and consultants. The conference’s technical sessions offer the latest developments and best practices in the field.

OHMers Craig Dashner and Thomas Bachmayer will present on a challenging project – maintenance of the Blue Water Bridge.

Session Title: Original Blue Water Bridge Anchor Link Replacement
This $3.6 million project included replacing two anchor arm links, pins and bushings while maintaining heavy traffic on this international crossing from Port Huron to Ontario. A unique temporary support system was used to jack and overcome the tensile load on the links, and pin boring required a 0.003” tolerance.

Session Date, Time, and Location: Tuesday, August 20, 1:10-2:00pm, Ballroom I, II, and III
