As I’ve been watching all of these videos of the bridge construction work (see Part 1 and Part 2) it occurred to me to wonder how many bucket loads of concrete it took to complete the work of this one day. I had Allen do the calculations, taking into consideration that the buckets were being filled about 1/2 – 2/3 full each time. His answer? 2500 bucket loads. 2500 trips back and forth from the mixers to the edge of the pour. That would certainly make for a long day!
