Airport Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Recommendations – Columbus Regional Airport Authority (CRAA) – Columbus, Ohio

STONE completed 10 bridge inspections at the John Glenn Columbus International Airport, which included crossings for airport taxiways. Up-front coordination was required since staff needed to be escorted in the restricted Air Operations Areas (AOAs). Upon completion of the bridge inspections, STONE provided a written report documenting findings, opinions and recommended maintenance with associated costs of each recommended repair. The National Bridge Inspection condition ratings used were taken from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Bridge Inspector’s Reference Manual.  The condition rating scoring system used “9” being the highest rating as “excellent condition” and “0” being the lowest rating as “not in service”. Each inspection was documented with a photograph log. STONE subsequently met with CRAA staff to review the reports and maintenance recommendations. The report was then finalized and the bridge inspection reports were also be entered into and submitted on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Structure Management System (SMS).

“Having worked with STONE on a couple of projects I can say that Mary Sharrett and her staff work diligently to complete projects on time and in a highly professional manner.  They are trusted by state and federal agencies and their experience with permits saves the client time. They are among the best and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
