DISASSEMBLY 2E + 22 BAY - W/O LINK REINFORCEMENT
Preparation for Disassembly
If pumps, hoses and water are available, the bridge and erection components should be washed before
loading them on pallets.
If washing cannot be done, the components are loaded directly onto the proper pallet.
Throughout bridge disassembly the NCOIC must monitor the height and level of roller beams. The
height must be set to achieve an acceptable working height. Roller beams must be level so that
components connect/disconnect properly.
Remove bridge classification signs, bridge guide markers and curbs (reverse of para. 4-26). Retain six
curbs on the near bank end of bridge as part of counterweight [see step (3)].
Remove far bank ramp units, removing center ramp first (reverse of para. 4-24).
Remove deck units (reverse of para. 4-25), starting on the far bank end of bridge as follows:
Leave a deck unit in the third recess of bay 1,7, 11, 17 and 21.
Leave both bays of near end of bridge fully decked (eight deck units).
Transfer remaining twelve deck units (this makes a total of twenty) and six curbs to complete the
counterweight on near bank end of bridge.
Add launching nose cross girder posts (para. 4-11b), then install launching nose cross girder onto posts
at required height (para. 4-11c).
Remove near bank ramp units, removing center ramp first (reverse of para. 4-24).
Raise near bank end of bridge using jacks, davits or crane, high enough to install capsill roller beam
