On December 9th, 2014, the YMF hosted a technical presentation on the emergency repair of Bridge 1-813 on I-495 over the Christina River in Delaware. Barry Benton, State Bridge Engineer of DelDOT, presented a timeline of events of the I-495 bridge emergency, from discovery of the problem to construction of the solution. The event was held on the 16th floor of the Municipal Services Building.

The event was geared towards the YMF members of ASCE and local engineering college students. Almost half of the ~40 attendees were students in the Philadelphia area, including two high-school students.
