Ohio Residents Have Say in I-90 Bridge Aesthetic Appeal CLEVELAND from page 1

sustainability and excellent community relations. Selection criteria for choosing the final design included: sustainability and green initiatives, I-90 bridge aesthetics, design management, proposed design, construction management, construction, quality management, schedule, community relations, onthe-job training, prequalification and cost, according to an ODOT press release. Each criterion was assigned a point value and a team of ODOT and city of Cleveland officials will evaluate the proposed design based on this technical criteria. Price proposals will only be opened now that the final three teams have been chosen. The contract will be awarded to the team which provides the “best value” based on a combination of the technical and the price proposals, the ODOT press release continued. No matter which team is selected, ODOT has made it clear that Cleveland residents will have a say in the aesthetic appeal of the new bridge. The team will be required to meet with city and community groups to present proposals for aesthetic details of the bridge, including color and lighting and surface treatments. ODOT also has worked extensively with the Innerbelt Urban Design and Aesthetics subcommittee chaired by Cleveland City Planning Commission Director, Robert N. Brown. The subcommittee, which include 35 instrumental community representatives, has been working since June 2009 to provide prescriptive comments to be included in the design/build contract. With monthly meetings and focus groups, the subcommittee considered and recommended a series of design principles for the structure, including consistent and coherent design, minimal piers, aesthetic lighting treatment and curved or “haunched” girders. The committee also prescribed specific enhancements to be constructed in the Tremont and Gateway neighborhoods surrounding the structure, including scenic overlooks, improved lighting and greenspace, multi-modal connections and additional parking. The finalized recommendations from the aesthetic subcommittee were approved by the Cleveland City Planning Commission in November 2009. Disadvantaged business participation in the project also is being stressed. In order to increase the amount of disadvantaged community and business participation in the project, ODOT announced a lofty “aspirational goal” for the project. ODOT has specified that 15 percent of work on the project

should be performed by small and disadvantaged businesses in the Cleveland community, three percent of workers should receive on-the-job training and two community outreach consultants will work hand-in-hand with the disadvantaged business community, according to Jocelynn Clemings, public information officer, ODOT district 12. ODOT began its comprehensive strategy to rebuild the Cleveland Innerbelt Plan in 2004. Included in the plan was the rebuilding of portions of I-71, I-77 and I-90 into downtown Cleveland. Regarding the existing bridge structure, “the Department spent about $10 million in order to make repairs to the existing Innerbelt Bridge so that the bridge may remain safe and in service until the new westbound bridge is completed in 2014. The existing bridge was restricted during the fall of 2008 after ODOT engineers discovered a number of steel members were aging more quickly than anticipated,” said Clemings. “Removal of the widening girder and a portion of the bridge deck was made possible only after extensive, detailed analysis of the steel members and connections of the main structure. In coordination with the FHWA, ODOT engineers found that the construction of a segment to widen the W. 14th Street on-ramp in the early 1980s added considerable additional weight and stress to the existing truss. After careful consideration of the analysis, the project team agreed that the best way to ensure safety of motorists on the bridge — while optimizing the trafficcarrying capacity of the structure — would be to remove the 300,000 lbs. widened segment of the W. 14th Street ramp,” said Clemings. Whichever team wins the contract, work to demolish buildings and prepare for the new bridge will begin later this year. “Motorists will not be affected until the summer of 2011 when work begins on the new structure,” said Clemings. In 2014, when the new five-lane span opens, it will carry both eastbound and westbound traffic until 2017. ODOT is planning to replace the current deteriorating Inner Belt Bridge at that time. At that point, the bridge built between this winter and 2014 will carry only westbound traffic and the replacement bridge completed in 2017 will carry only eastbound traffic.

Rudd Equipment Expands Territory, Services in Ohio Rudd Equipment Company’s recent move into Ohio has expanded its territory to include all or part of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and now, Ohio. Founded in 1952 by Mason Rudd of Louisville, Ky., the company is experienced in serving the construction, forestry, industrial and mining marketplace. In addition to Volvo, Rudd Equipment represents Driltech, Esco, Euclid, Hitachi, Kent, Link-Belt and Tamrock.

(L-R): Sales Manager Martin McCutcheon, Sales Representatives Jason Miller and Phil Pack are part of the Rudd Equipment Company team serving Ohio.

According to Sales Manager Martin McCutcheon, Rudd’s existing facilities and freight network provide such quick and easy access to Ohio that covering the new territory is a natural fit. With resources in the states surrounding Ohio, service technicians are quickly dispatched from Pennsylvania and West Virginia for eastern Ohio, Indiana for western Ohio and Kentucky for the Cincinnati market. Rudd Equipment has resident technicians stationed throughout Ohio and the company’s dispatchers have the ability to draw technicians from other branches as the need dictates. Rudd Equipment plans to open Ohio facilities in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland, according to McCutcheon. The first Ohio store will open soon in suburban Cincinnati and Rudd is actively scouting for locations in the other two markets. Currently, Rudd Equipment has strategically positioned machine sales and rental representatives throughout the state to serve the needs of its customers in Ohio. To complement Rudd’s existing veteran sales representatives already covering Ohio, the following new additions are now on board: • Sarah Chapman joined Rudd Equipment within the past year and covers the Cincinnati and Dayton markets. Chapman has several years of similar sales experience with the former Ohio Volvo dealer. • Jason Miller has a total of seven years experience in the construction equipment marketplace, of which the latest three were with the previous Volvo dealer. Miller serves the territory east and north of Columbus, Ohio.

· • Phil Pack, with ten years experience in the construction equipment marketplace, covers eight counties in central and northern Ohio. In addition, Rudd Equipment has six product support representatives supporting Ohio customers: Mike Frederick, Mike Meehan, Perry Post, Phil Rindlaub, Tom Schorr and Shawn Taylor are strategically positioned to address the support needs of the Ohio customer base. Rudd’s move into Ohio has been a positive change based on one customer’s reaction. Eric Johnson, area product manager for National Lime and Stone Company, said they are

pleased with their support from Rudd Equipment. National Lime and Stone recently purchased seven Volvo machines from Rudd Equipment to add to their existing fleet of twenty Volvo machines. “From everything we’ve seen, they’re a top quality organization,” said Johnson, “They [Rudd] provide first-rate communication and services, their sales staff and mechanics are extremely knowledgeable and well trained. Their response time is quick, regardless of the office location.” For more information, call 800/529-4050, or visit www.ruddequipment.com.
