Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

“Patience” and “skill.”  Those are the two words being used to describe what it takes to place the arches on the new Interstate 74 Bridge between Bettendorf and Moline.

Photos posted on the I-74 River Bridge Facebook page showed workers making progress over the weekend of March 1.  The pictures show a crane lowering an arch segment, which weighs about 250,000 pounds, onto the top of an arch pier.

“Steel rods embedded in the pier are covered in PVC pipe to provide a guide as the iron workers line them up with the arch segment,” read the post. “At times, the workers would need to make adjustments manually.”

The first segment was placed with no issues, according to the post.
