13.8 billion years ago, the universe began with the Big Bang. According to scientists, when the Big Bang occurred it produced equal amounts of matter and anti-matter. Yet, if matter and anti-matter were created in equal parts, why is everything in the universe composed of matter? This is a question scientists have been trying to answer throughout history. In fact, this question is the inspiration behind an experiment called the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). Neutrinos are the most abundant matter particles in the universe. These tiny particles are produced in large quantities in the sun and stars and

When it comes to quick and affordable alternatives to traditional bridges constructed on site, TrueNorth Steel offers an innovative solution with our prefabricated modular bridge system. From abutments to guardrails to deck panels, we use an AISC certified fabrication processes to ensure higher levels of quality. A crucial element of our prefabricated modular steel bridges  is our RediDek™ prefabricated steel bridge deck panels. These panels work in conjunction with TrueNorth Steel’s SuperSill™ abutment system , both of which are an integral part of TrueNorth Steel’s Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) process . Here’s how our RediDek™ prefabricated steel bridge deck panels contribute to

One of the most integral parts of installing a prefabricated modular bridge system is the abutment. Tasked with supporting the lateral and horizontal force  pressure applied by the bridge, the abutment or spread footing needs to be structurally sound and durable to ensure the structure meets design requirements and is safe to use. Traditional abutments are typically cast-in-place concrete or precast concrete shipped to the job site. However, both methods have their drawbacks. Abutments cast-in-place require more excavation and take longer to install. Precast abutments are very heavy, making them expensive to ship and usually require a crane to unload
