Manhan span

With the help of a pair of Hallamore 275-ton cranes, workers from Northern Construction match up two pieces of a four-section pedestrian bridge that was bolted together and placed over the Manhan River in Easthampton on Monday. The walkway, which had arrived in four pieces, was assembled here on the deck of the existing Northampton Street (Route 10) bridge and then lifted over utility lines and installed a few feet to the west of the existing span on temporary abutments. The Northampton Street bridge is expected to be closed for six months.
