Heavy Bridge Maintenance

Salvaged Bridge Material Program

In an effort to strive to provide safe and efficient transportation solutions to support Arkansas’ economy and enhance the quality of life for generations to come, the Salvaged Bridge Material Program was initiated.  The program will allow steel beams from bridges being replaced by ARDOT, which are currently being retained by the Contractor and either reused or scrapped, to be salvaged and reused by the Counties on bridges planned for
replacement on the local roadway system.

The program is currently open to all 75 Arkansas Counties.  To see more information pertaining to the Salvaged Bridge Material Program, click to view the documents attached.
