Two weeks after shooting spree, Georgia Senate backs bill to loosen gun restrictions 210329-Atlanta-Sen. Bo Hatchett (R-Cornelia) speaks in favor of HB218 on Monday, March 29, 2021. Ben Gray for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution By Maya T. Prabhu , The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Two weeks after eight people where gunned down in three Atlanta-area spas, the Georgia Senate on Monday approved legislation to loosen the state’s gun laws. “This is a Second Amendment protection bill that further recognizes Georgia’s commitment to protect its citizens and their Second Amendment rights,” said state Sen. Bo Hatchett, a Cornelia Republican . House Bill 218 passed 34-18 on a party-line vote, with Republicans in support of the measure. The fact that the vote came shortly after the spa shootings was something Democrats highlighted in opposing the bill. “We don’t have to live like this,” said Sen. Elena Parent, an Atlanta Democrat. “We don’t have to see three establishments shot up and eight people dead in our state. We don’t have to live in fear of the next mass shooting.” Canton Republican Rep. Mandi Ballinger initially proposed HB 218 to make it legally easier for travelers to bring their guns into the state. Senators amended the legislation during the committee process to allow probate judges to process gun carry licenses and license renewals online. Currently, applicants must go to the court in person. The legislation also prohibits the governor from closing weapons manufacturers or shooting ranges during a public emergency. The Senate also voted 34-18 to amend HB 218 to include a proposal from state Sen. Jason Anavitarte, R-Dallas, to bar the governor from enacting any guidelines that “specifically limit the practice of any religion” during a declared state of emergency. Businesses and nonprofits also would be able to operate as long as they meet safety protocols as established by the governor. The measure now heads back to the House for its consideration.

4 innovations shaping infrastructure construction These high-tech construction techniques can help civil contractors do their work safely and in less time. Earlier this month, the American Society of Civil Engineers designated 13 new projects as Infrastructure Gamechangers — groundbreaking projects and programs that represent the latest innovations  in transportation, water and energy infrastructure. Located across the country, these projects make use of the latest practices, principles and technologies to build and maintain infrastructure such as roads, bridges and tunnels more efficiently and safely and for less cost. Four of these Gamechangers involve construction techniques currently in use by departments of transportation that could change the way that civil contractors operate. They are: Permission granted by Purdue University photo/Erin Easterling The Indiana Department of Transportation is using a concrete sensor system developed by Purdue University researchers to better pinpoint how far along concrete is in the maturation process. By leaving the sensors within the concrete for an extended period, engineers can study the effectiveness of their work over time, as opposed to the conventional testing period of just 28 days. The system also communicates to INDOT when concrete needs to be replaced.  The team is tracking concrete strength development in real time through measurements of hydration, stiffness, compressive strength and other properties. So far, the researchers and INDOT engineers have embedded the sensors into three highways and the Purdue team also is working with the Federal Highway Administration on a nationwide pooled fund study to implement the technology in other states.  The researchers say the policies could save millions of dollars per year and cut down on traffic.  “Being able to track concrete strength over a longer period of time would help engineers to know if they’ve over- or under-designed roads and better determine when to replace the concrete,” said team leader Luna Lu, an associate professor in Purdue’s Lyles School of Civil Engineering, in a release . Permission granted by Michigan Department of Transportation Scour, the removal of sediment around bridge substructures by fast-moving water, is a leading cause of bridge failure, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation. The agency has identified more than 400 bridges on the state highway system and nearly 1,200 on local roads that are ”scour critical” and in need of close monitoring during high-water events. Typical inspection for scour involves inspectors launching a boat and probing the channel bottom with metal rods, weighted tape measures or sonar devices. During high-flow events, this can be a dangerous task, according to MDOT, and this is where the unmanned surface vehicle can come in. The department is employing an autonomous boat-like device, called an unmanned surface vehicle (USV) to inspect bridge footings beyond what is usually possible during human dives. The 4-foot-long USV, named EMILY, uses cameras and sonar technology to investigate conditions around a bridge before determining if a crew member needs to get in the water. ”Using the USV is much safer and less labor-intensive than traditional inspection methods for detecting scour,” said Chad Skrocki, MDOT’s project manager for the research,  in a press release . California-based TechniSoil Industrial's Neo product is a recycled road substance created by blending recycled plastics with reclaimed asphalt pavement. The company mills the existing roadway and mixes a polymer-infused substance with the reclaimed pavement, and then immediately re-paves the recycled substance back onto the road.  Neo uses 150,000 plastic bottles per lane mile to create a 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, a decrease of 84 truckloads per mile of hauling waste asphalt out and new asphalt in, and provides the opportunity for same-day returns to traffic. In addition, Neo roadways are expected to last three times longer than asphalt and are about five times as strong as traditional materials, according to ASCE. North Dakota Department of Transportation’s Autonomous Impact Protection Vehicle is used to protect construction crews from other drivers on the road who may not be paying attention to the construction site or have lost control of their vehicle. In 2019, 261 work zone related crashes occurred on North Dakota highways, resulting in 64 injuries and two fatalities. The autonomous vehicle will improve safety in work zones by removing the driver from the impact protection vehicle during normal operation, according to NDDOT. The technology, developed by Kratos Defense in partnership with Royal Truck & Equipment, converted a current NDDOT truck into a self-driving vehicle.
