Worthington Bridge

Posted

bridge4bridge3Allegheny Mineral’s Worthington plant was a key supplier for limestone products for the complete bridge replacement in Worthington. AMC provided Rip Rap for stream bank stabilization, as well as subbase that was used for the bridge approaches.

The new bridge was tested in late 2013 when record rainfall, in excess of 3 inches, was received over the Worthington area in a very short period of time (see photo). Officials said at least 200 homes sustained flood damage, mainly to basements. Several roads in the area had to be shut down and required major repairs. Flooding was described as the worst since Hurricane Ivan, in 2004. However, the new bridge structure handled the rain event without damage.
