This project included the replacement of two existing bridges over the Cape Fear River and overflow with new bridges measuring 1,570' and 300'. The main span over the Cape Fear was accessed by barges, and the rest of the project was accessed by land. The existing bridge had a 300-foot-long truss over the river. We removed it by lowering it onto barges and floating it close to the bank of the river. It was then cut up and recycled much more safely than if we had demolished it over the river.
