ODOT monitoring Ironton-Russell Bridge temperature
Posted: 15-Feb-2003 4:16AM CST
The Ohio Department of Transportation has been monitoring the temperature of the Ironton-Russell Bridge. The steel on the aging bridge becomes very brittle when it reaches low temperatures. If the temperature drops below minus 5 degrees Fahrenheit, ODOT will temporarily close the bridge.
In related news, progress is being made on plans to replace the bridge. ODOT's plans for a new bridge have recently been approved by the Federal Highway Administration.
