At Adams Avenue in Fresno County, crews recently installed 16 concrete pre-cast girders to form the superstructure of the Adams Avenue Grade Separation. Now, crews are gearing up to set pre-cast concrete panels to form the deck of the structure while ironworkers tie rebar for the diaphragms, the supporting portion of a bridge that goes between each girder to help prevent girders from rotating and to help distribute vertical load distribution.
