Bridge mover – 1

One shot bridge replacement.
This rig is run by electric motors with a top speed of about 10 ft./minute.
The carrier is designed to hold over-weight loads – in this case a bridge replacement. The bridge is pre-built then moved into place overnight. This reduces downtime for the roadway. Lots of gawkers on hand for the show.
