Crews working on the $1.5 billion Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project in Long Beach, California are using two specially designed movable scaffolding systems, that cost $10 million each, to build roadway segments with a 205-foot clearance for shipping vessels. The movable scaffolding systems allow workers to use laser surveying equipment below the bridge to ensure the scaffolding and bridge segments are properly aligned, and to assemble formwork.
