One Year Anniversary - The PTC Lateral Bridge Slide
One year ago, Advantage Steel & Construction successfully slid the first bridge into place on the Pennsylvania Turnpike for Brayman Construction Corporation and the PA Turnpike Commission. A lot of hard work and planning allowed for this successful award winning project.
The new superstructures were built off-line and laterally slid into position during a 55-hour weekend closure. During the closure crews worked around the clock to demolish the existing superstructure, make required repairs to the beam seats of the existing substructure, laterally slide in the new superstructures, and reconstruct the roadway.
