STAGING SPAN REPLACEMENT FOR OLD BRIDGE SAVES $5 MILLION

The paper reports how, instead of building a new bridge to carry heavier coal trains across the Missouri River near Rulo, Neb., the prefabricated steel spans were slid onto new and modified piers that supported an existing 90-year-old bridge. The rehabilitated structure will be 1,863-ft-long with eight plate girder side spans and two through truss spans in the center. It will be 186 ft shorter than the existing 2,049-ft bridge because the east embankment will be extended.
