Ryot Covered Bridge
Ryot, PA United States | 2004
This customer is regularly involved with the state departments of transportation across the country, and knows the value of maintenance free hot-dip galvanizing. Coating durability was extremely important to this project due to the location of parts after installation. Access is limited, and therefore a steel-preserving method with historical success was important.
For this project it was difficult to control and limit coating thickness, so cook time and cleaning were critical in the outcome. Though the parts in this project go unseen, they are important in maintaining a stable driving environment. The bridge is over 200 feet in the air, and subject to weather and high winds. Corrosion would be unacceptable, so the bearing castings were specified to be HDG. The Arizona Department of Transportation and engineers can rest assured that these bearing coatings will have the durability needed to provide stability to the Hoover Dam Bypass project for years to come.
