Behind the K-Rail: Concrete Pour for Bridge Deck


Ever wonder how crews construct a new bridge deck? Wonder no longer! The video below shows the construction team pouring the deck for the new Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. overcrossing over Highway 99 in Stockton. The pour took about 10 hours and 500 cubic yards of concrete. For comparison purposes, the bed of an average full-size pickup is about 2.5 cubic yards. See the crew in action below.
