Ambassador Bridge

In 2009 Advanced Geomatics took part in work on the Ambassador Bridge that connects U.S. and Canada. The Detroit International Bridge Company (DIBC) had decided that the optimal alternative is to replace the deck, stringers and related metalwork in the main span (U.S. tower to Canadian tower) as opposed to continuing with repairs to these components. These actions will ensure that the structural integrity of the bridge is maintained.

Advanced Geomatics purpose of this project was to perform an “as-built” survey to determine the existing plumpness of the two main towers as well as the four existing bents on the U.S. side, to provide top of floor beam measurements at five points along each floor beam at locations requested by the engineer, and to provide topographic measurements along the top of the deck itself.
