A325/A490 Torque Tools Used for Bridge Construction

America’s bridges need help.

According to an April 2019 report by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, an estimated 47,000 bridges in the U.S. need to be repaired – if not replaced outright – to meet future traffic demands.

While this situation seems dire, the good news is that significant improvements in bridge construction and design over the past 20 years will lead to much sturdier bridges. In this blog, we’ll look at the updated standards for bolted connections in the bridge industry and the importance of calibration for bridge construction torque tools
