Mass.’s Astro Crane Gives Big Lift to Route 111 Bridge Project in N.H. By Jay Adams

CEG CORRESPONDENT

High above the New Hampshire roads, in the shadow of Canobee Lake Park, two cranes and a dozen men coupled big steel beams into place. Those huge steel beams for the bridge were set by S & W Construction, a steel erecting company in Concord, N.H., and lifted up by cranes supplied by Astro Crane Company of Stow, Mass., subcontractors working under the guidance of Middlesex Corporation, the project’s general contractor, based in Littleton, Mass. The new bridge is part of Astro Crane has kept two all-terrain, truck-mounted Liebherr hydraulic cranes, the construction of a new I- models LTM 1160 and LTM 1220, on the project. 93 northbound roadway in us.

S & W Bolts 32 Beams Into Place for Route 111 Bridge Job BRIDGE from page 1

“S & W really know what they are doing. You have to know a lot to bolt together those big beams. To get the diaphragms [connections between beams] all connected to get everything bolted up, you have to work well.” The companies’ work schedule requires them to lift and secure two beams per crane each night. “The first 16 beams were on Route 111. That was four nights, probably 10 to 12 hours a night,” said Wright. “It was eight days total, two beams a night, an average of 10 hours per day.” Ambitious Planning According to the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT), the 20-mi. (32 km) widening of I93 between Exits 1 and 5, from the Massachusetts state line to Manchester, N.H., may be its most ambitious road project to date. The overall goal is to make this busy highway corridor safer and to improve traffic mobility. NHDOT literature states that Interstate 93 is one of New Hampshire’s principal arterials and is critical to the economic vitality of the state, region and local communities. After carefully reviewing several alternatives and their environmental, social, economic and cultural impacts on the southeastern New Hampshire region, NHDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) moved forward to reconstruct and widen I-93 to safely and efficiently meet the mobility needs of New Hampshire, now and in the future. According to the NHDOT Web site, I-93 travels just over

A total of 32 beams make up the bridge, with the heaviest weighing 59,000 lbs. (26,761 kg). The beams are just over 8 ft. (2.4 m) high. The largest ones are 116 ft. (35 m) long. The span, the total length of the bridge, is just under 400 ft. (121 m).

131 mi. (211 km) in the Granite State; around two-thirds of the highway’s total distance. Serving as the main interstate route in New Hampshire, it connects the state capital, Concord, and its largest city, Manchester. Beyond Concord are the towns of Tilton, Plymouth, and Littleton. I-93 enters New Hampshire at Salem, where the current reconstruction of the Exit 1 ramps (leading to the Mall at Rockingham Park) along with the reduction of the freeway from four northbound lanes to only two, tends to cause traffic backups. The corridor remains only two lanes wide in each direction for its first 18 mi.

Mass. Business Shares Its Recipe for Rental Success

Craig Sessions, owner of West County Equipment Rentals, said letting the machine do the talking is half of his recipe for success. “Securing high visibility parking spots for our machines, so people can see them, touch them and get really tempted to rent them,” are key factors according to Sessions. From the start, he put to work his concept of using the machines as 3D billboards, parking them in a visible spot with clear “Rent Me” decals. The other half, though, is a bit more difficult. “Give nothing but top-notch service,” he Donnie Rowell gives a Cat mini-excavaexplained. Giving top-notch service means a few key tor a top-to-bottom cleaning. things to Sessions. One of them is being open seven days a week. Another is always unnecessarily and works to be fair on its answering the phone — after the fourth ring, delivery charges, and to deliver in a timely all calls go directly to Session’s cell phone. fashion. And the list goes on to include, for example, “We charge the same now that we used to taking the time to really listen to people and charge in 2005,” said Sessions, adding, understand what they are trying to achieve, “Why would I increase the rates if it’s worknot just rushing to close the deal by renting ing well for everyone?” them whatever they think they should rent. see RENTALS page 18 “I do whatever it takes to get the rental,” he said, explaining that it may take him two hours to extract from somebody enough information to understand that what they really should be renting was not the piece of equipment they were inquiring about, but a different one.
