Tackling Unique Challenges With Expertise & Creativity


PTC WB-224B Bridge Slide

Steel Erection


Beaver County, PA


Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission

General Contractor:

Brayman Construction Corporation

Completion Date:

October 2017

Advantage Steel and Construction was involved in sliding the first bridge into place on the PA Turnpike. Advantage Steel erected the eastbound and westbound bridges over Brush Creek, just south of the existing turnpike bridges. The erection occurred on a temporary support system Advantage Steel designed and made to slide the bridge in to place.

During a weekend closure, after Brayman Construction removed the existing bridge, Advantage Steel slid both the Eastbound and Westbound structures into place and lowered them onto the existing abutments and pier.
