Cianbro has just completed an emergency repair on the Memorial Bridge which connects Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine.

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.
