135’-0” double wide through plate girder (DWTPG) span for UPRR Bridge 286.55, Boone Sub in Denison, IA
Tractor trailers will be used to haul the 27 loads of steel to the job site. The common girder will have to be laid flat because the center of gravity is too high if shipped vertically. The tractor trailer being used for the common girder (see below) has 11 axel locations with 2 axels per location (see end view). Each axle has 4 tires time 22 equals 88 tires for the trailer alone. Each axle is separate from each other and can be steered independently. A “push tractor” will be attached to the end of the trailer to help the load over hills etc. Front to end the entire load is roughly 192’-0 in length.
Once the steel is onsite the spans first phase will be built alongside the existing span. after it’s fully erected it will be slid into position with the use of hydraulic pistons and a series of rollers. It will take 4 weeks to assemble phase one steel and ready it for train traffic.
125 Ton girder x 135 feet of pure steel – working late to support American Class 1 Rail. Pure love for this PVS team!!
PVS Structures, a division of Owen Industries created a stainless steel support structure that was used in the containment structure at the Vogtle Nuclear Power Plant in Burke County, GA.
The tower is a part of new technology that was used to make the power plant safer. Stainless steel is corrosion resistant with favorable strength, toughness and fatigue characteristics.

PVS Structures is thrilled to be a part of the new Omaha Performing Arts Center (OPA), a music venue in the downtown Omaha area. It’s located in the newer Capitol District.
The intent is to connect the Holland Performing Arts Center with the OPA venue. A large catwalk area is being built that will allow shows and performances to be enhanced. This live music venue is being designed to attract more performers who might otherwise overlook Omaha. The project’s completion is slated for 2023.
This project will help tie together The Capital District and Old Market with the new Riverfront area. All located downtown helping the Omaha area grow and prosper while attracting the next generation of young adults.
PVS Structures is proud to be a part of Habitat for Humanity -Brew Ha Ha 2021. This years event was held at Sterling Ridge, close to several buildings that contain PVS steel.
