Media Advisory/Photo Op - Structal-Bridges begins delivery of 70-ton box girders for the Highway 25 bridge



    QUEBEC, Sept. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Structal-Bridges, the largest steel bridge
manufacturer in Canada and a division of Canam Group Inc. (TSX: CAM), will
begin delivery of 37-foot (11.3 m) box girders weighing 70 tons each that will
be used in the construction of the cable-stayed section of the new Highway 25
bridge. The first delivery will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, September 8.
    Due to the sizeable weight of the 11-foot (3.4 m) wide steel girders,
Structal-Bridges must employ oversized load transport equipment in order to
deliver the components. A 10-axle low-bed semi-trailer carrying the first
girder will leave the Quebec City plant at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow morning under
police escort to deliver the component to the bridge work site in Laval, where
they are expected to arrive around 11:30 p.m.

    
    Date:     Tuesday, September 8, 2009
    Time:     9:30 a.m. (departure of low-bed semi-trailer)
