Blatnik Bridge Repair

Superior, Douglas County


A recent inspection revealed that 23 gusset plates -- the steel plates that help connect elements of the bridge -- need to be repaired or replaced. One of the gusset plates has a crack that affects its structural integrity. The others have varying degrees of corrosion. The final decision whether to repair or replace these gusset plates will be made after additional data is analyzed.
