Photos: Installation Of 54 Ton Beams Cause Delays On I-10

January 30, 2015

Drivers have dealt with nighttime delays this week on I-10 in Escambia County as crews positioned large beams for a new Scenic Highway overpass.  The beams are about 102 feet long and weigh 57 tons each (114,000 pounds). Because of the massive size and weight of the beams, a 200 ton crane was required to lift and place them.

    As most of you know . There have been delays at night but for the most part traffic rolled pretty smooth. I am very glad to be a part of the process. I will have something to tell my grand children about. As well as it being my signature. I take pride in it.

    A small price to pay for progress. Glad to see our end of the state getting needed repairs and expansion.
