He says bridges throughout the state are an area of concern.“If you look at the statistics today, about one out of six bridges out in the rural areas of our state right now are either in need of replacement or upgrades to handle the loads that are common now in modern agriculture. Whether it’s a semi or larger tractors and equipment.”Ebert says many rural bridges may be rated for far less weight than what it can actually support, meaning many farmers have to actively avoid those bridges to deliver their grain. But Ebert says new technology can assist local governments in making those determinations.“The technology that we’re working with, in conjunction with Indiana LTAP (Local Technical Assistance Program) at Purdue University, is a bridge testing system that uses gauges and known weights transiting across the bridge to really interview the bridge to ask it, based on the load going across it and the structure of the bridge, what that bridge is truly capable of safely handling.Ebert wants to let local officials know that this technology is available.“We are attempting to promote this technology, so we can see broader scale adoption because it’s a real efficiency issue for local governments.”If you have a bridge near you that you wish could be tested, you or your local official can contact Ebert at [email protected] By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 18, 2018 New Technology Available to Test Rural Bridges SHARE Previous articleHouse Moves to Send Farm Bill to Conference Committee, Appoints ConfereesNext articleDennis Maple Elected to National Corn Board, Ending Long Indiana Drought Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter SHARE
