This is not the first time ADOT has used the bridge slide method to install a new bridge. Last fall, this method was used to install the new Bellemont bridges at I-40 and Hughes Avenue, formerly Transwestern Road, west of Flagstaff. Workers used hydraulic jacks to lift and move the new Bellemont bridges into place after the old ones were demolished. ADOT regularly looks for accelerated bridge construction methods and other innovations that can reduce delays and inconvenience for drivers.
