    Moving a Bridge

    Last weekend MNDOT moved a bridge on an overpass so that they could build a new one. They created a timelapse video of the move.

    It is kind of neat to see the move.

    Saw an excavator going across what was left of the bridge. It looked to be as wide as what he was on. That would be some pucker factor....

    Yeah I was watching it the first time as was wondering, so, they can move that bridge but not the far 10' section that was the shoulder? Maybe it would interfere with the new bridge they are building in the location where the old one was but it seemed odd to leave that there. Then use an excavator to tear up that section, while on it....
