FB_site1During a rededication ceremony, Jason Cook, General Superintendent for the Maryland Site Division, accepted a certificate for Kinsley’s part in the rehabilitation of the Burnside Bridge at the historic Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD. This bridge was a key focal point of the bloodiest one-day battle in U.S. military history and is an iconic symbol of the Antietam Battlefield. Six hundred Union and Confederate soldiers lost their lives on or in close proximity to this bridge.

Kinsley’s contributions to this rehabilitation were the construction of an access road to the creek and supporting the installation of a Porta Dam system. This system diverted the stream from the work area, allowing us to excavate and expose the existing bridge abutments.  Kinsley also excavated and backfilled footers for the bridge abutments, installed concrete encased storm drain, graded and paved the bridge deck, reconstructed the gravel paved roads and restored all of the disturbed areas.  The project was completed in December, but Antietam National Battlefield waited until National Park Week to hold the rededication ceremony.
