With our AISC Fracture Critical Endorsement (FCM), PELET supplied the general contractor, J. D. Eckman, Inc. with the specified material and fabricated components to restore this historic truss bridge. Should any of the FCM components fail, the bridge would collapse. PELET has an impressive resume fabricating componets for cyclic, compression, and tension load restoration projects.
These bridge components received several layers of protective coating applied after fabrication. PELET then had the material hot dipped galvanized to ASTM D6386 specifications. Additionally, 2nd and 3rd coats of specialty paint were applied prior to shipment.
