Steel As Far As the Eye Can See!

July heralded the arrival of the first shipment of steel for the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge from Cimolai in Italy. The prefabricated pieces rolled into town from the Houston Port weighing up to 100,000 pounds. The second shipment of steel arrived in Houston on August 6.

 

The steel fabricator, the Cimolai Group, originated in 1947 and the company is one of Italy’s top fabricators and erectors of steel structures for bridges, buildings, shelter for aircraft, and electricity towers. This company plays an active role in field erection and welders are in town from Italy preparing the steel and working to erect the center arch pylon.
