Tim will discuss the state of Ohio's bridges as a whole (Local, County, State), how bridge preservation funds are allocated to Districts, the Muni Inspection Program (current/future), and the Ohio Bridge Partnership.
Brendan will discuss the state of Cuyahoga County's bridge program (division of responsibilities, number and condition of structures, how capital plan is funded, past and current program, future needs).
Bob will discuss the state of Summit County's Bridges (how many bridges, condition of bridges, how decisions to rehab/replace are made, upcoming program).
ABCD hosted Dronewerx in January to help engineers become more familiar with drone technology and bring awareness to certain issues such as permitting requirements for a project, FAA requirements, risks to the Consultant, special insurance requirements, contract requirements, and deliverables.
