I-890 OVERHEAD SIGN STRUCTURE

In a groundbreaking venture, Hubbell Galvanizing and Di Highway Sign and Structure made a notable entry into the overhead sign market. The inaugural project at the interchange of I-90 and I-890 in the City of Schenectady marked the commencement of numerous overhead sign structures supplied to Departments of Transportation across the northeast.

This project stood out as a remarkable achievement, as it involved not only the fabrication and galvanization of support structures but also active participation in their erection.

A distinctive feature of this undertaking is that it signifies the first collaboration between Di Highway and Hubbell Galvanizing following Hubbell’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. Di Highway played a pivotal role in reviving Hubbell, and the symbolic rise of Hubbell from adversity was encapsulated in its new logo—the Phoenix.

Galvanizing was the chosen method for ensuring enduring corrosion protection. Even after twenty-six years, coating thickness measurements indicate that the zinc coating surpasses the minimum requirements specified by ASTM A123, attesting to the longevity and reliability of the galvanized structures.
