The operator of the computer that controls the SPMT movement is walking behind the SPMTs, along with three other construction workers monitoring progress. Two new bridge spans are shown in a staging area where they were constructed.
A bridge span is being constructed at a staging area. A new bridge span supported by self-propelled modular transporters is shown in a staging area where the span was constructed near the bridge location. Self-propelled modular transporters carry a bridge span up a road to the bridge site. A couple dozen people with hard hats and safety vests are shown in the foreground as they observe the demonstration.
