Work Zone Cam shows bridge reconstruction

Dec. 1, 2017

I’m in the Boston area, and there are a couple of ongoing bridge-reconstruction projects that are seeming to take forever. I commented on the Longfellow Bridge rehabilitation back in May 2014—about a year into the project. At that time the estimated completion date was September 2016, but the work continues.

So I was impressed to be able to see the complete reconstruction of New Jersey’s oldest bridge—Stony Brook Bridge on Route 206 in Princeton—in less than a minute and a half. Well, the project actually took four months, but Work Zone Cam has a 1’ 27” time-lapse movie of the complete project, which ran from July to November.

Work Zone Cam reports that the original stone arch bridge, which was constructed during George Washington’s presidency, was redesigned with 21st century technology on the inside, while retaining its charming 18th century stone-work design on the outside. Route 206 was closed for four months while teams worked to rehabilitate the 225-year-old bridge. Work Zone Cam captured each stage of the repair process for the historic bridge with high-definition megapixel images.

Work Zone Cam says it provides a professional, reliable, and easy to use time-lapse camera solution. Backed by technology licensed from EarthCam, Work Zone Cam systems are wireless, all-weather digital SLR cameras that are suitable for documenting projects and producing HD quality time-lapse movies. With applications in the construction, retail, healthcare, education, and design-build industries, the rugged construction camera is designed for extended outdoor use.

Some other projects documented by Work Zone Cam involve facilities such as the Orlando Citrus Bowl and projects such as the Chicago O’Hare Modernization Program.
