What is the plan for moving this massive structure to it's remote location?
Looks to be quite a challenge!

Bob, we are hiring a professional building moving company to move the bridge from Sheepscot to Trout Brook. The bridge will not depart Sheepscot until the site at Trout Brook is ready.

Don’t we have to cut inspection access ports into the inside sheathing walls?  Or am I just remembering ports in the pictures of the original bridge?

The interior sheathing is attached with screws for easy removal, for inspection purposes.

See ya

I assume the roofs on the trusses get covered with shingles. Is that correct?

The drip edge, galvanized steel, has being prepared for painting, on the weekend it was "pickled" using white vinegar to better hold the paint, plans are to complete painting today (5/21).

Linc Reed-Nickerson's pictures of sheathing being installed on the bridge. There is a couple pictures of the fire proofing being sprayed on the bridge and side sheathing. A couple pictures of the tie rods being installed in the bridge deck are also included.

Thanks for this great, detailed photo exam, particularly the weatherproof spraying and the closeup of the perfectly installed roof decking.
Movie set quality.  ;)

Paul and Jeff have it right. The picture story really helps one understand what is now hidden under the sheathing.
