A Closer Look at Main Span Towers, Crossbeams


This has been a busy few months for the project: the main span towers are now higher than the roadway — and visible to us! — and crews placed two of the four crossbeams. I remember when the jump forms were at barge level.


Photographer Andrew Dallos took these close-up pictures of the towers — that are 1200 feet apart and will reach 419 feet tall — and the crossbeams between them.


Temporary steelwork held the 742-ton westbound crossbeams in place while crews connected them; the 645-ton eastbound crossbeams will be connected next.

I’d like to know what you think.
