Slide-in Bridge Construction is an EDC-2 technology that's gaining popularity across the country. Shown here is the Oregon 38 bridge across Elk Creek. The new bridge was built adjacent to the old one, and once construction was complete, the old structure was removed and the new one jacked up a few inches and slid laterally into place on lubricated bearings along tracks. The move was accomplished in a few hours over a weekend.
