MARLIN performed a hands-on inspection of suspension cables for Eastbound and Westbound bridges of Maryland’s major dual span bridge – Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Cable casing, stanchions, and saddles were inspected for leaks and deficiencies. Florida Drawbridges, Inc. (FDI) required a soap solution inspection process to locate any leaks of the dehumidifier system throughout the entire cable system.
Coordination was essential for the success of this project as the time window was relatively short due to traffic requirements and weather constraints affecting climbing operations. Additionally, project deliverables included inspection and report documentation with accompanying photographs and/or video of deficient areas.
