City of Richmond Bridge Safety Inspections

RS&H provided bridge safety inspection of the Riverside Drive and Manchester bridges for the City of Richmond. The Riverside Drive structure is a single span, simply supported steel beam bridge over Rattlesnake Creek. The Manchester Bridge is a multi-span bridge over the James River, Norfolk Southern RR, CSX RR, and the Haxall Canal in downtown Richmond. Work on the Manchester Bridge included routine and fracture critical inspections; coordination with the contractor performing rehabilitation work, local businesses, and railroad flagmen; right lane closure using an A-75 Snooper, and non-destructive ultrasonic testing on pin and hanger assemblies for 96 pines. The contract also included underwater inspection of the Mayo Bridge.
