A Giant On the River

1 x 52

It’s a race against the clock. The world’s most skilled civil engineers are working to complete one of North America’s largest, most complicated bridge construction projects, in record time. With 59 million vehicles projected to be travelling over the new Champlain Bridge each year, a dedicated team of builders have come together to create and execute a design unlike any bridge of its kind. Along with the complex and ambitious construction, crews must also continue to allow marine traffic through the St. Lawrence Seaway throughout the process. With the many challenges facing this architectural miracle in the making, will the team be able to complete the project in just three-and-a-half years? Or even at all?
