DGL performed load rating activities, in conformance with ODOT and CEAO requirements and specifications, of numerous fracture critical truss structures located within Wood County. Project highlights included:

  • Review of all record drawings provided by Wood County to verify intended structural design behavior for each structure.
  • Field assessment of structure’s current condition; specific attention given to section loss within critical locations of primary structural elements.
  • Load rating for all critical structural elements of each structure, including primary truss members, floor beams, floor stringers and gusset plates.
