This technical notice requires immediate attention. Failure to read this technical notice and to take immediate steps to comply with its recommendations may lead to serious injury or possibly death.
In the process of investigating recent incidents involving bearing bridge applications achieved with Hydro Mobile equipment, it was decided to reiterate the crucial importance of proper inspection and maintenance procedures of bridges, specifically older bridges showing signs of excessive rust on the bottom steel chords around the link plate attachment areas. Investigation results have shown that in at least two cases, due to improper or lack of inspection and maintenance, the steel chords on the bottom of the bridge sections in the link plate attachment areas were irreparably damaged by excessive rust, causing failure of the bridge section.
