This year’s keynote speaker will be John Grady, P.E., Region 1 Regional Construction Engineer from NYSDOT. He will be presenting on the construction of the new Lake Champlain Bridge that connects Crown Point, New York to Chimney Point, Vermont, a crossing of approximately 2,000 feet over Lake Champlain. It was closed unexpectedly in autumn 2009 and subsequently demolished when inspections revealed excessive deterioration. Mr. Grady's presentation summarizes the challenging process of rebuilding a replacement signature bridge on an accelerated schedule (1 PDH available).
