Work has also started on the assembly of the pedestrian bridges that will carry passengers from the wayside areas to the stations.  The bridges will be assembled on the ground in sections that weigh up to 200,000 lbs, then hauled to their final location using our heavy haul rig and set in final position with one of Williams Construction Services’ fleet of cranes with up to 300-Ton capacity.  Check back for future updates as the project goes forward.

New 300T Link-Belt Truck Crane

Williams Construction Services is pleased to announce the arrival of its new Link-Belt HC-278H II 300 ton truck crane.  This crane, with up to 330 ft of main boom, is capable of  heavy lifts at great distance and height such as erection of large trusses and tall tower cranes.  As an added feature, it can do everything a similarly capable hydro crane can do at a greatly reduced cost.  This crane really is the best option for short term rentals of the most difficult lifts.  For additional information and rental inquiries, please contact Brian Burke at 703-335-7830 or by email at bburke@wmsi.com.
