A full day of work at Highbridge in New Ipswich.

Cement Pumper
Cement being pumped onto bridge decking and rebar. The pumper could only reach half way and needed to be moved to the other side to finish the work.
Wet Burlap
Workers cover the cement with wet burlap till it cures.
Cement Roller
A motor driven roller smooth the cement . It travels back and forth along rails (See Video).
One patch left
They used all the cement before they finished this patch. One worker joked that it was a speed bump. Another call for a cement truck.
Take a break
The workers got some down time until the last load of cement arrived.
No contact
The bridge is completely suspended over the span and has no physical contact with the original stone bridge. It offers an ideal habitat for a troll.
