STATE ROAD (SR) 836 BRIDGE CAP SEGMENT AND BEAM LIFTER
The SR 836 bridge cap segment and beam lifter started operations on Tuesday evening, June 28. The 480-foot-long lifter or gantry was specifically designed to install bridge cap segments and beams for this project. To complete the new SR 836 double decked roadway, the lifter will erect 145 bridge cap segments and 363 bridge beams. Each cap segment weighs just over 90 tons and the bridge beams range in length from 100 feet to 190 feet. To view an animated video of the lifter in action, please click below.
