A view of Dick Corporation's Clifford Hollow Bridge. Individuals are seen "walking the beams" to survey the bridge's steel beams. They are checking the tenth points to check beam deflections and determine fill points for the concrete deck. This process must be done across the entire bridge, which is 1565 feet in length, before the concrete deck can be poured.
