Drone Reality Modeling for the Historic Stone Arch Bridge Rehabilitation Project
Collins Speaker Series
The historic Stone Arch Bridge Project in Minneapolis is in the design phase of the rehabilitation project to make repairs and extend the life of this important bridge. Our project team is using drones and reality modeling to create models of the entire bridge which are being utilized to document inspection results in the field and also to communicate proposed repairs. This innovative workflow is already proving to save time while at the same time improving project deliverables.
