Almost there...Almost there...

Lowering into place...The girder is lowered onto the concrete pedistal on the west end of the bridge. The far end will make a butt joint with the previously erected girder over Phoenxiville Pike.

Gently aligning the girder with the overlapping joint...The girder is gently aligned for the overlapping butt joint with the previously installed girder.
