Shenango River Dam - Custom Stairway for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Hermitage, Pennsylvania
The ability to find solutions for any type of aircraft or hangar often leads to unusual engineering projects outside of aviation. The distinctive requirements of the Shenango River Dam Bridge seemed an almost impossible task to keep within a reasonable budget. This challenge was accepted by S.A.F.E. The stairway spans 55 feet from the top of an embankment down to the riverbed in order to provide safe access to the shoreline downstream of the Dam. The unstable embankment provided unique challenges that did not allow for a center support. S.A.F.E. provided engineers specializing in geology, civil and structural engineering from the local area. Massive concrete pads measuring over 25 feet deep and 8 feet wide hold the stairs solidly in place. At the base, a concrete pad with steel rods was driven deep into the rock bed to hold the 10,600 lb stairway.
