Bridge Construction #5

Hwy 400, Ontario, Canada


Each beam weighs between 100 to 150 tonnes. The weight of the crane and it's counterbalances equal to about 400 tonnes. Despite all this weight, high winds can still be a factor to be aware of when placing the beams. It was very windy on this day as well as cold. It was about -25 C with the wind-chill. Not exactly ideal conditions to be working in.
