Cianbro has just completed an emergency repair on the Memorial Bridge which connects Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine. Due to the hard work by the committed crew, Cianbro completed the quality repair a week ahead of schedule and with zero safety incidents. Cianbro was awarded this contract to install steel support gusset plates at a weakened location on the bridge. The work consisted of setting up traffic controls for the pedestrian traffic, hanging suspended scaffolding under the bridge, containing and de-leading the work area, coating the steel, chipping and busting rivets, installing custom bolts in the rivet holes, designing and building templates, fabricating and installing cheese plates and the final gusset plates, and lastly, applying a three coat paint system to the steel repair. Cianbro's onsite team consisted of Iron Worker's Dave Bond, Scott Bumps, Mike McVane and Welder Louis Martin, all led by General Foreman Bill Moulton and Superintendent Pat Sughrue.

The result: new lineworkers are heading to Cianbro's T&D projects, including the big 51 mile long 345 kV project for VELCO in Vermont.

With all three wind turbines successfully erected on Vinalhaven Island off the Maine coast, Cianbro crews are in the process of demobilizing.

The City of Brewer, Maine has been recognized with a prestigious federal award for the work done by the city to help a team of visionaries, including Cianbro, to redevelop an idle mill into a successful manufacturing facility. The Environmental Protection Agency is honoring Brewer officials with the EPA's Phoenix Award for the city's work in lining up two million dollars worth of financing that resulted in the ecological rehabilitation of the old Eastern Fine Paper mill property.
