Gantry crane for moving precast bridge elements

Shuttlelift, Inc., Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235, USA


The I-35W bridge reconstruction, spanning the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is the latest high-profile infrastructure project to invest in a Shuttlelift SL 300 gantry crane. The original bridge was built in 1967. It was expected to last fifty years and carry 66,000 vehicles per day. However, by 2004, an estimated 140,000 vehicles were crossing the bridge, daily. It collapsed on August 1st 2007 with tragic consequence; thirteen people died and over 100 others were injured.
