Terex Tandem Sets 32 Girders in Two Shifts

Date: 01-06-2016 / Author: mlarson

Working in tandem, two Terex lattice-boom crawler cranes set a total of 32 concrete I-beam girders for highway bridges in two eight-hour overnight shifts.

The lifts were done as part of a project in which contractor C.A. Hull Inc., Walled Lake, Mich., replaced two 57-year-old highway overpass bridges in Bay County, Mich.

The original bridges that needed replacing had been built in 1958. After more than half a century of service, those original spans had become structurally deficient and the traffic volume using them has risen to 31,800 vehicles per day.
