Rehabilitation of the New River Gorge Bridge
Towering 876 feet over the New River Gorge in West Virginia, the New River Gorge Bridge is one of the highest vehicular bridges in the United States. With a main span of 1,700 feet, it also is the longest steel arch bridge in the western hemisphere. Join Matt and WVDOT Bridge Inspection Program Manager Billy Varney, PE, to see construction videos and photos of the ongoing rehabilitation and learn about the inspections using rope access, the 3-D finite element analysis, and unique repair methods and materials.
See the New River Gorge Bridge up close during the SASHTO Catwalk Tour on August 28th! See conference program for details. Advance reservations required.
