I work for the company that fabricated and erected this bridge. Expansion of the current railroad bridge over the i-215 near Barton road.

3 bridges consisting of 6 spans weighing 1.1 million lbs each. The transport vehicles are the same vehicles that moved the space shuttle through California.

Took 3 nights to erect each span with a total of 10 hours per span installation.
