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.

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