Two longitudinal girders are used to position the rear roller beam 15 ft from the front roller beam and ensure that
both roller beams are parallel to each other. The girder also assists in the assembly/disassembly of the end of bridge.
The dowels at the end of the girder are inserted in the holes in both roller beams. When the roller beams are
finally positioned the longitudinal girders remain located in the front roller beam but are removed from the rear roller beam
and lowered to the ground ready to assist in assembly/disassembly of the end of bridge.
DOWELS. Used to locate the longitudinal girder in the roller beams.
