Rebar Collapse Spills 150 Cubic Yards of Concrete

August 18, 2015

Two construction workers were pouring concrete to replace the surface of State Street Bridge in Salem, Ohio, when the rebar system collapsed spilling 150 cubic yards of concrete, reports WFMJ.

The workers were able to jump to safety and no one at the work site was injured.

Workers from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and project contractor Marucci & Gaffney worked to clean up the 150 cubic yards of concrete before it hardened.

The collapse will likely delay the project for two weeks, ODOT Project Engineer Michael Blair told WFMJ
