Getting Closer: Road Deck Now Tops Blue Girders

Another project first: this month crews began installing the nearly 6,000 high-strength concrete decks for the bridge’s approach spans.

Nearly 1,000 concrete deck panels will cover the main span roadway.

Prefabricated offsite, the deck panels are barged from Port of Coeymans and lifted by cranes and placed on the blue girders that sometimes cause excess braking. The process continues into next year.

I’d like to know what you think.
