VIDEO: Mammoet’s Mega Jack system lifts Wellsburg Bridge


Mammoet and Flatiron Construction successfully completed the heaviest floating bridge lift ever executed in the U.S. 

The Wellsburg Bridge connects Wellsburg, West Virginia and Brilliant, Ohio. The hope is that it will reduce travel time and improve commerce. 

Forecasted wind motivated a decision to complete the entire operation in a single day, rather than the original plan of two. 

Mommoet’s experience with jacking and floating bridges led to minimal disturbance to traffic on the river.
