REMOTE-CONTROLLED BRIDGE MONITORING

A midwestern research laboratory has installed what is believed to be the first global remote monitoring system on a highway bridge. The system -- installed on a rolling bascule bridge over Sturgeon Bay in Door County, Wisconsin -- allows engineers located at the laboratory in Evanston, Illinois, to closely monitor crack propagation and other conditions on the bridge, which is near the end of its design life.
