CLEVELAND BERRY: New Cleveland Bridge Construction Technology Developed by Indian company
The Cleveland-based Bridge Construction Technologies (BCT) has developed a bridge construction technology that will help the Indian state of Gujarat get a better handle on the construction of the proposed $5.7 billion Northeast Freeway project, a project that will connect Cleveland to the Indian states of Gujarat and Punjab.
The company said the technology will be used in India to construct a bridge in India’s Punjab province and a bridge at the proposed North Dakota-Chicago Freeway interchange in Illinois.
The Northeast Freeways project, which has been delayed twice by the U.S. Congress, is being built by the state of Punjab in partnership with Indian state-owned companies.
The project is to span more than 12 miles from Cleveland to Chicago and eventually reach the U,S.
Midwest.BCT’s technology will help bridge builders better identify the right material and locations for bridges, according to its website.
The company said it has worked with Indian government officials to find the right sites, which include a section of the existing bridge, as well as the existing structure and other infrastructure.
The Ohio River is expected to be under construction by 2020, but the project is still in the planning phase and it could take several years to complete the project, according.
A bridge is needed to connect the Northeast Freways to the new freeway.
The new bridge, called the Northeast Corridor, will also connect to a highway that will run from Chicago to the Ohio River.
The highway, currently called I-70, will be replaced by the proposed new I-90 highway.
The new highway is expected in 2019.
