Median samples



Eric Offenberg, director of engineering at the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority, stands next to three sample concrete blocks for the new median on the Newport Bridge. The blocks, which will be linked together in a zipper fashion, are made of tinted concrete that is the same color as the new paint on the bridge. It is the first time the manufacturer has ever tinted concrete median blocks. With the concrete tinted instead of painted, chips and scrapes will not remove the color.
