Turnpike bridge repair draws national talent
from The Philadelphia Inquirer
A search for expertise has stretched across the country in the effort to repair the Delaware River Turnpike Bridge. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission have hired four construction firms, eight engineering contractors and two national engineering experts, including the man who first publicly identified welds as a factor that caused a crack in a beam in the bridge, to assist in the repair work. That crack prompted closure of the bridge Jan. 20, and it is expected to remain closed to traffic until at least April.
