We’re tearing down this bridge.
This one gets a total rehab except for the superstructure.
Brand new floor beams and everything, inposts.
The whole front wall of your pits is going to come off.
As soon as they drain the canal,
We’re going to tear them out.
Right now we’re just cutting it down,
Then we’re going to pour it back
So they can reset the approach beams.
The whole bridge is supported on these four posts.
Then they’ll take the inposts out and put new inposts in.
