Defending Castleton

October 2012
Roads & Bridges;Oct2012, Vol. 50 Issue 10, p79
The article highlights how hot-dip galvanizing has kept the threat of corrosion away from the northbound lanes of the Castleton Bridge on Interstate-69 (I-69) in Hamilton County, Indiana. It relates that while deicing solutions and salts have been applied throughout the years to Castleton Bridge's southbound lanes, the northbound lanes successfully met American Society for Testing and Measurement (ASTM) specifications for galvanized structures during an inspection done last September 2011.
