We were very distressed to discover an omission in the Summer 2010 issue of ASPIRE. In the article on the David Kreitzer lake Hodges Bridge on page 36, the following important information did not appear: The editors and staff of ASPIRE offer our apologies for the omission. The web version of the article has been corrected. 4 | ASPIRE , Fall 2010 R E A D E R R E S P O N S E Editor, I happened to meet Henry russell [ASPIRE's managing technical editor] yesterday while visiting a recently completed bridge we designed for the City of Dayton, Ohio. I wanted to send along a picture of that completed bridge—the Edwin C. Moses Boulevard Bridge. This picture is the realization of the rendering shown in the Fall 2009 issue of ASPIRE (page 50). We read ASPIRE TM diligently here. It presents interesting concrete bridge projects and information, thoughtfully described and displayed. Seth R. Schickel RW Armstrong Indianapolis, Ind. Editor, I have received and read every issue of ASPIRE TM with great enthusiasm since its inception. I must say that it is the best source of information on concrete bridges in the market place. I save all the issues for future reference. ASPIRE has very high production values, which makes it easy and desirable to read. Please keep up the great work! Ken Shushkewich KSI Bridge Engineers San Francisco, Calif. Editor, I was trying to find the paper by Larry D. Olson on "Advances in Nondestructive Evaluation and Structural Health Monitoring of Bridges" from the Summer 2010 issue. The article references the "resources/ referenced Papers" section on the website for the full article. Can you email me when the paper is posted to your website? Isaac Canner Moffatt & Nichol • Blaylock Long Beach, Calif. [Editor's Response] The article is being posted on the web. In the meantime, here's a copy. Editor, Thanks for the quick reply. Our company has a large inspection and rehabilitation practice group. Many of the waterfront structures we inspect have deck delamination problems. So, we drag a lot of chain on the decks to map delamination damage manually. It is interesting to read about the advances in nondestructive evaluation.
