Field Operations
Field Surveys
• LIDAR survey was taken before and after on 5 long
span structures.
• Calculated LL deflections from vehicle were up to 6”
• Survey showed before and after elevations of the
bridge deck surface and the bottoms of the girders
were within the tolerance of the method used.
• Any post move deflection was undetectable from a
survey perspective.

Field Operations
Structure 10720, Lee County
• Originally designated to be ‘jumped’
• Field review of route raised concerns about limited
hospital access for an extended period.
• Detour length = 50 miles.
• Hauler’s consultants recommended removing a 20 kip
counterweight from each of the tractors.
• Tractors effectiveness was limited due to traction
loss.
23
Field Operations
Structure 24362, Norton
• Rated by private consultant. Substructure controlled
at pier due to uneven span arrangement
• Travel restrictions were issued.
• During transport, hydraulic line broke while crossing
the structure. Lead tractor was over critical pier.
• After line replacement, vehicle initiated movement
from rear tractor, which was not on bridge.
