Rollin' Down the Highway
Posted by Alison Trost on June 28, 2010 at 8:48 AM.

On the weekend of May 1 a light rail steel bridge was rolled into place over the 6th Avenue highway in Denver. This tied arch bridge is 65 ft tall, weights 1.2 million lb and was rolled into place from the south side of 6th Avenue. To watch this process on YouTube click here.


The bridge was designed by Portland, Ore.-based David Evans & Associates and fabricated by AISC member Fought & Company, Tigard, Ore., to be placed quickly and efficiently as part of the FasTracks West Corridor Project.
