Re: 11-Foot-8 + 8 Bridge Reopened

Thank you very much, Sand Box John Looks like the RR was raised 8", I see 8"I beams on the bridge supports........

They replaced the protection beam 8" higher lifted the bridge girders, put 8" of 2" plate on top of the bearing points, bolted everything down, added ballast, regraded and tamped the aproches, cleaned and painted all of the steel and exposed concrete.

The passenger trains that use the line went through with minor delays during process.

There are a several video on youtube of the razing process done by person that shot this and another person.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. At least it will be around forever on You Tube.

It still an under height bridge. The protection beam is still in place along with the over height detection and warning sign. We may not see the Penske Peal any more but there is other stuff out there that is taller.

Ah, OK. I was looking at something else, so the 8" of 2" plates did the raise. I would love to see the construction videos of this bridge raising.

Thank you for the explanation , Sand Box John

Doing the exact same job in NYC would have taken at least ten times as long and cost ten times as much.
