The Mount Hope Bridge
connects Bristol Rhode Island with Portsmouth, Rhode Island and was constructed in 1929. I was down here today delivering some of our Vibco Vibrators to a company that is refacing the piers. We were working on the Portsmouth side. It was a beautiful day and I got to climb all over the construction site with my cameras and of course the vibrators did their job perfectly.

The concrete (and me) was transported to the bridge pier by barge in these large buckets and then lifted up to be emptied into the forms.

Here is one of our Vibco Vibrators
in operation. This is an SVRFS-4000 aluminum model with our new suction mount we call the 'Stik-It'. The ease of operation was surprising and the movement and consolidation of the concrete was fantastic.
