Only a few people turned out to hear a panel of three civil engineers talk about their Favorite Problem Solved on Thursday at the Mary Wood Weldon Memorial Library, but those who did attend had several questions for the panel.
Among them was 9-year-old Frances Tinch, who inquired about the width of support columns used to hold up a railroad bridge near Louisville.
Dusty Barrett, an engineer with American Engineers, built the bridge. He showed slides showing a progression of the bridge work, and answered questions from Tinch and other audience members during his presentation.
His answer to Tinch’s question, “These were about as wide as I am tall, so pretty wide,” he said.
