Each of the three pre-assembled structural steel segments is larger than a football field. Read more on the Huey P. Long Bridge Facebook page which also contains links for two webcams offering a view of the project.

The article “Lift, Slide, Attach, Repeat” in the September 2010 issue of Modern Steel Construction describes the project in detail. You can read it by clicking here.
