After over 100 years of support of the Willis Avenue Bridge (70,000 vehicles / day) located in New York, everything was ready for retirement and replacement.
The new bridge made of steel, had a structure 105 meters long, 20 meters high and 23 meters wide; reaching 2.3 million kilograms.
He had been prefabricated in a huge construction yard near Albany, New York and would have to be transported more than 160 miles to get to your new home.
Photographer Stephen Mallon took over 30,000 images to compose this timelapse of shipment and installation of the Willis Avenue Bridge, which connects Manhattan to the Bronx in New York. The move came in the summer of 2010 and, as they say in Wikipedia, leave speechless a few passersby who saw a bridge climb of over 100 meters and 2,400 tons by the Hudson River to the Harlem River. The sequence summarizes the whole process in four minutes.
