Constructed in 1973, the westbound structures of the William Lane Memorial Bridge carry three lanes of U.S. Route 50 across the Chesapeake Bay. During an overlay project at the bridge, Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA) inspectors found areas of extensive cracking and debonding. Working with O’Connell & O’Connell, SGH investigated the cause of debonding and helped develop repair procedures for the 5 mi. long structure.
