Muskingum Bridge Removal
October 30, 2015
Adamo Group worked diligently today to remove the Muskingum Bridge with minimal interruption to pedestrian traffic. As a part of the Muskingum River coal-powered station project, the 105ft center section of the bridge was removed using a 172-ton capacity telescoping hydraulic crane. This midwestern power company belt line bridge was previously used to transport coal from the mine directly to the power station at a distance of 5 miles away. It took Adamo Group only 5 hours and about 60,000 lbs of pressure from the crane as well as multiple slings, counterweights and rigging to safely set down the bridge on the south side of the river away from pedestrian traffic. All work was completed without any safety incidents.
