Improving Work Zone Safety

A sure sign that summer has arrived in Missouri is when the heat and humidity return. Another indication of summer is when the “Road Construction Ahead” signs pop up along the state’s highways, roads and streets. These signs usually indicate delays in getting to your destination. Time can be lost due to traffic congestion, work […]

Engineer Promotes Earthquake Awareness

Engineer Promotes Earthquake Awareness

In the winter of 1811-12, a series of powerful earthquakes occurred along the New Madrid fault in southeast Missouri. The earthquakes reportedly rang church bells in Boston, Massachusetts, and caused chimneys to fall in Cincinnati, Ohio. Those earthquakes remain the strongest seismic events ever recorded in North America east of the Rocky Mountains. Structural damage […]
