Photo detail

Travis Voss, near, and Roger Pinson, guide a concrete girder approximately 120 feet in length into its seat on the pier cap. Both are carpenters who work for Fred Weber, Inc., the construction company building the new bridge over the Maries River on the new stretch of U.S. 50, just east of the Osage River. Research engineers from the Misssouri University of Science and Technology have been working on a new concrete composition, complete with sensors in the concrete and instrumentation to collect data on how well the bridge performs over time.
