Photos of Main Span Placement on New Eggners Ferry Bridge
December 1, 2015 - Crews worked before dawn, throughout the day and into the evening hours moving the 5.1 million pound main span of the new Eggners Ferry Bridge. The 550-foot steel span took hours to get into position as engineers carefully floated the $20 million span into place. At about 2:00 p.m. workers began to lift the span about 80 feet so it could be placed on top of the concrete piers.
Here is a video and some photos of today's event:
