L.B. Foster Company Secures Contract from Walsh-Granite Joint Venture to Provide Permanent Metal Bridge Deck Forms

L.B. Foster Company has been awarded a contract by the Walsh-Granite Joint Venture, to provide permanent metal bridge deck forms for use in the repair or replacement of over 400 structurally deficient bridges throughout the State of Pennsylvania. This public-private partnership was created by the State as an innovative funding program to address the rehabilitation of bridges primarily on suburban and rural Pennsylvania highways. The State of Pennsylvania’s public-private approach is designed to expedite the redevelopment of unsafe bridges, lessen construction costs and minimize the impact of highway closures. The use of permanent metal deck forms is an efficient approach to bridge deck construction and will help to support the program’s goals. L.B.
