Construction is about to begin on the first project in Vermont to use lateral slide construction. The project will build two new bridges over interstate 91 near Burlington, Vermont. The two bridges will be constructed adjacent to the existing bridges and then will be slid into their proper place to finish the project. This relatively new construction method is becoming increasingly popular in highway construction, and the record was recently set for the world’s longest truss slide.
