ELR's Community Involvement

Posted: March 19, 2014

ELR strives to be a part of the engineering community by participating in different organizations and volunteering at events. Recently, Mr. George Maki of ELR Cleveland participated in the 14th Annual Summit County Miniature Bridge Contest where students concentrated their best efforts to build a miniature bridge out of balsa wood. Some of our other involvement efforts include:

The Dodridge Street Bridge project in Columbus, Ohio was selected by the Association for Bridge Construction and Design (ABCD) Central Ohio Chapter as recipient of the 2013 Outstanding New Short Span Bridge Award. The Dodridge Bridge was also selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to receive the Ohio Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement of 2013! Thank you to everyone who helped make this project a success!

Outdated storm-sewer maps get an upgrade

Posted: December 9, 2013

CHARLESTON, W.Va. Engineers are taking the next step in Charleston's storm watersewer system mapping project, connecting plotted manholes and inlets on the city's surface with the system of pipes that run beneath.

The city's stormsewer system hasn't been thoroughly mapped since the 1930s or updated since the 1970s, according to Tom Elkins, the city's stormwater manager. The city often finds this information is outdated, as maps don't include improvements or projectspecific drawings exist only in individual files and on paper.
