Grand re-opening of The Weightman Bridgevon Barron Wang
Weightman Bridge located on Portage road crossing Welland River in Niagara Falls. The bridge is 97.5m long and 18.8m wide. The rehabilitation of the bridge was tendered in March 2010 and completed in May 2011. Schoeck Canada supplied ComBAR® rebars for bridge deck and sidewalks.
The bridge re-opening was on May 19th, 2011. Major James M. Diodati of Niagara Falls hosted this ceremony. The bridge was named by a local business man – Mr. Weightman. The grand daughters of Mr. Weightman were invited in this ceremony as well.
The public work manager Geoff Holman introduced how this bridge was built. He was holding ComBAR® rebars during his speech, and said his municipality is very proud of using this most advanced reinforcing materials.
There are several reasons to use ComBAR® rebars, two of them are corrosion free and high strength in long term performance.
