‘Beam me down,’ APAC


Workers remove first of six support beams from Katy Trail Bridge

Ardel Ivy of APAC Construction works to remove steel extensions from one of the six steel beams that supported the decking of the Katy Trail Overpass Bridge on Thursday evening. The 13-foot, nine-inch clearance sign on the bridge seems to be ironic once the beam rested on East Broadway Boulevard prior to being placed on a flatbed truck to be taken to Advantage Metal of Sedalia for recycling.


A worker from APAC Construction uses a torch to cut one of two support beams free prior to the first 54-foot support beam being removed from the Katy Trail Overpass Bridge Thursday night. The first beam removed weighed 30,000 pounds, according to the scale reading on the crane used to lift the beam. The height of the beam was six feet.


A worker secures the strapping to a steel cross beam prior to its removal by crane Thursday night. APAC Construction plans to have the original steel structure of the bridge removed by Wednesday. Work began on the project March 15 and is expected to be completed in 90 days, weather permitting.


Workers from APAC use torches to remove steel extensions from the back of one of six deck support beams on the Katy Trail Overpass Bridge. The extensions were removed to make stacking and transporting the beams to Advantage Metal of Sedalia less hazardous. The beams were loaded on the back of flatbed trucks Thursday night after their removal from the bridge structure.
