Looking still further ahead, it is apparent that there is need in the bridge engineering profession for comprehensive erection engineering specifications for steel bridge construction. Such specifications should include guidelines for such matters as devising and evaluating erection schemes, determining erection loads, evaluating erection strength adequacy of all types of bridge members and components, designing erection equipment, and designing temporary erection members such as falsework, tiedowns, tiebacks, and jacking struts.

Huge doubleboom travelers, each weighing 270 tons, erect closing plate girders of the 375 ft (114 m) main span. 3 m) deep and 115 ft (35 m) long and weigh 146 tons each. Sidewise entry was required (as shown) because of long projecting splice material. Longitudinal motion was provided at one pier, where girders were jacked to effect closure. Closing girders were laterally stable without floor steel fill-in, such that derrick falls could be released immediately. 30 Floating-in erection of a truss span, first Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Maryland, 1951.
