One man was sli injured and several man-hours of work and cubic yards of concrete wasted when a bridge span on Interstate 77 slipped about a foot yesterday afternoon. Walter Bolden, 38, of Tuscarawas was treated in Union Hospital* emergency room for a strained left hip after a "knock-out block" atop one of the steel support beams collapsed, snapping the ladder he was working on (lower right). Bolden fell some 20 feet. Melvin Rock of 609 Short St., who was working atop a ladder (still standing) alongside of Bolden to reinforce the side of the bridge, escaped injury. Both are employes of Ruhlin Construction Co. of Akron. Other workers are shown using a fire hose from a Dover tanker cs they began washing away the concrete before it set. The span is the last major project to be completed in the 10-mile section of IS 77 from Strasburg to Green Gables. The steel support beams are removed via the "knock-out blocks" once the bridge is complete. The bridge is located behind Robinson Clay Products Co. at Parral. (Staff Photo by Bob Sprankle). ;
