Special recognition to Troy Gatewood, Dave Lewicki and Mike Sheehan for recently qualifying as all position welders from the American Welding Society:
March 2021- EHS has begun work on a contract to repair two historic bridges, built in the early 1900s, in Ottsville and Buckingham, Bucks County.
The work includes replacing existing concrete bridge deck beams; repairs to the concrete substructure; constructing concrete approach slabs; upgrading the bridge railing and guiderail; and new paving.
In its first foray into the nation's Capital, on the weekend of April 16th, EHS was happy to assist the Federal Highway Administration on a project on the National Mall, to upgrade the bridge deck overlay of Independence Avenue over Maine Avenue.
EHS divided the project into three shifts and had 40 of its employees staff the project, 24/7 over the course of the weekend.
The work included micromilling to remove the existing overlay and replacing it with a Kwikbond Polyester Polymer Concrete Overlay. This project was unique in that the National Parks has requested a "dark gray" color for the overlay which is traditionally more of a tan color. Working with Kwikbond we were able to provide a pigmented product that satiisfied the aesthetic need of the project.
