Video: Dishwashing liquid helps bridge slide into place

Concrete SmartBrief | May 25, 2016

A crew of 20 used hydraulic jacks and dishwashing liquid as a lubricant to help slide an 800,000-pound bridge into place in Columbia, Mo. "Building the new bridges on temporary columns adjacent to the old structures and sliding them onto the new bridge columns drastically reduces construction time," said Travis Koestner of the state's Department of Transportation. He also noted that it reduces traffic issues and "greatly increases safety." EquipmentWorld.com (05/24)
