The forth girder is now in place. They were going to load the last girder on the dollies this afternoon to be moved on Monday, but because there is a front moving through the area tonight with possible high winds and precipitation, they elected to wait until Monday.
As of Monday all 5 girders will be in place. The new girder that will replace the one that was destroyed will be delivered on Wednesday. It will be assembled at the installation site.
In talking to Bob, this road is going to be finished in December, inclement weather or not.
Here is the fourth girder ready to be set on the "pads". The cranes are about to remove the girder from the dollies. 120,000 lbs of counter weight was needed on the 500 Ton crane to perform this feat:
Here is a look at the pad that the girders are set on. The girders are not secured to the pad. They just rest upon it so they can move during an earthquake. It isn't as if they are going anywhere. There are cables that will secure the top of the girder to the road.
You'll notice the girders seem very close together. They are just being placed on the pad, to be separated and spaced once all are in place.
Toolman was able to get some good pictures taken of this span from the canyon below with a telescopic lens. He hopes to have them posted by Monday.
