Pennsylvania Turnpike Authority
Somerset, Pennsylvania

One of several building projects Dome Corporation has completed for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Authority, this 80-foot by 240-foot “High & Dry” trussed building holds 10,000 tons of road salt. The building’s high glulam arches allow tractors to dump at their full height without fear of hitting the building’s trusses; while the 12-foot-high reinforced concrete sidewalls are built to withstand product and loader pressures – eliminating concerns about wall blowouts, which are common with wood wall systems. A natural light-emitting panel running the length of the building reduces electrical lighting costs.
