Colossal Swing Span Replacement Successful in District 8

One of the largest projects in the region for members in District 8 has been the $75 million replacement of a swing span bridge on the BNSF railroad over the Mississippi River.

Members working for Ames Construction and DCCi had a 30-hour window in which to replace the old span with the new 360-foot, 4.2 million lb. span. The deadline was met with ease, and the employers praised the Operating Engineers’ “get it done attitude” in a letter sent to Local 150.

This project provided very valuable employment for members, and was funded through the Federal Stimulus Program.
