Scott Bridge was called in for an emergency repair on this Lift Span Bridge that was struck by a tugboat and was knocked out of alignment rendering it unusable. This was significant because it held up river traffic as well as rail traffic for three weeks. Scott Bridge finished repairs in 5 weeks including repair to integral parts of the lift span counter weighting system. While work was ongoing, Scott Bridge used two 100 ton cranes to raise and lower the lift span as required for railroad and river traffic. Repairs to this bridge were valued at 1.6 million dollars.
