Hogg’s Hollow Bridge
One of the largest bridge engineering projects using primarily structural steel in recent years.View Project »
Located in the City of Windsor, Ontario, this bridge is based on a unique triple arch design. In order to minimize the required field assembly, we took a modular approach to creating the bridge; fabricating enormous modules in our plant and then shipping them in convoys to the site. An intense welding and Quality Assurance program helped to make the project a success.
Walters Inc. provided all fabrication and installation services for the project.
Our Engineering group worked closely with the structural consultant to eliminate a number of splices and reconfigure some of the critical platework details to provide a better overall aesthetic and to reduce long-term inspection and maintenance costs.
The major challenge on this project was shipping to avoid all field welding, blasting and painting over the sensitive river and wetland environment. At the time, these were the widest loads ever shipped along the Highway 403/401 corridor involving a parade of trucks, escort vehicles, police escorts, spare tractors, ramp traffic management vehicles, etc. to convoy the arches to site.
