DeLong’s, Inc. – I-44 Sliding Bridge Over Gasconade River

I-44 Bridge over Gasconade River, Laclede County, MO

Due to the high traffic on I-44, this bridge was let with the requirement that the roadway be closed to traffic for sixty days or less.  The bridge was built on temporary piers alongside the existing bridge and slid onto the old piers with hydraulic jacks after demolition of the existing bridge.  This Accelerated Bridge Construction resulted in a closure to traffic of only twenty days.  DeLong’s worked to accommodate changes that occurred due to the requirements associated with sliding the bridge into position.
