RS&H, in association with Five Studios, has produced, “In the Blink of an Eye,” a documentary detailing the story of the heroic Mathews Bridge Emergency Repairs in Jacksonville, Florida.
When the bridge was hit by a ship in late 2013, a main truss member of the structure was severed, causing safety concerns and authorities to close the bridge immediately. Based on our long-history and knowledge of the bridge, RS&H was called to the scene to help design the repairs in remarkable time.
The documentary shows the process and challenges the team overcame together to reopen the bridge in a quick and impressive 34 days from September 26 through October 29, 2013. More than 200 workers came together for this emergency repair project.
