    Meant to post some more action shots of a concrete placement we made atop the SW sheave tower on one of our bridge projects yesterday. I got tied up on the project and the 4 hour drive home pushed posting off the priority list. Here they are now:

    Before the start.

    The tower we worked on is on the right and the height is just under 200'. This picture was from the day before yesterday, which was cold and windy. We got lucky yesterday with a mild 50ish (F) day and very light winds.

    This is a view looking towards the northern towers.

    The concrete trucks stop just off the temporary bridge (trestle) for testing. If you blow the shot up you can just make out the DOT inspector, our 3rd party QC tester and our QC Manager standing there waiting for the next truck. The truck proceeds to the end of the trestle and offloads concrete into a 3 yard bucket which is lifted to the top of the tower and placed by the crew. It's quite a sight to watch the supervisor direct the crane operator on where to position the bucket so the crew can place the concrete efficiently and without making a mess. This one was about 30 or so yards, which took 10 buckets (or so).

    To say I am proud of what these guys do is an understatement. They work through lunch and breaks and always get the job done. Things don't always go as planned, and when they don't these guys work harder to make sure it comes out right. This was a nice day. They work in some bitter conditions at times. Most of the public who travel on the infrastructure have no idea of the ingenuity, effort, sacrifice and commitment construction workers put in to what they do.

    A recycled photo to maintain decorum.

    And a witty pun (it's funny as I'm a floyd fan, oldish and have a shed! At least that's what my siblings think)

    Wife made me buy her a BMW Z4, so I thought I would wear a matching BLNR.
