(19) Position 16 personnel around end of bridge, lift and carry bridge forward until end taper panels rest on front
roller beam rollers and panel point 1p2 is over rear roller beam rollers. Lock rollers.
(20) Adjust the height and level of front and rear roller beams so the top panels are roughly parallel to the ground
to prevent difficulty in lifting top panels into place. Level roller beams at the adjusted height so girders of
bridge are on the same horizontal plane and at an acceptable working height.
The NCOIC and side party leaders must continually monitor the height of the rear of the bridge to
prevent difficulty in lifting top panels into place. Failure to think ahead will slow bridge
construction and could create safety hazards for the work party.
Connect sway brace from bankseat beam to center of end taper panel. Add another sway brace from center of
same end taper panel to rear of other end taper panel.
