Ohio Turnpike Rebuild Underway

Date: 2016-09-24view:

Rebuilding work is underway on the Ohio Turnpike in the US at present. This 388.3km route is being upgraded in a project worth a total of US$1.4 billion.
The work is being carried out in a series of sections, with bridges in Williams County being replaced or refurbished during 2016. Resurfacing work is being carried out on the route on stretches during 2016, including sections in Sandusky County, Erie County and Lorain County. Bridge deck joint repairs are also planned in Sandusky County.
Built from 1949 to 1955, construction for the roadway was completed a year prior to the Interstate Highway System. The modern Ohio Turnpike is signed as three interstate numbers: I-76, I-80, and I-90. As a result the route is one of the oldest highway stretches in the US, which is why it has been in such need of improvement. Work being carried out includes resurfacing, widening and the replacement of bridges.
Anchor bolt is an ideal and reliable anchoring product for road rehabilitation works. It is applicable for surface stabilization of embankments & cuttings for road & rail projects. Especially in the complex landslide area, anchor bolt can play a good role of geotechnical anchoring and grouting consolidation in loose soil. Taking the construction safety, construction period and other aspects into comprehensive consideration, anchor bolt is a very good method for rehabilitation works.
