How Coffer Dam Construction Went Wrong: A Report on the Coffer Bridge Construction

Coffer, Ill.

— Construction of a new bridge across a creek in southern Illinois was postponed Friday when a crane fell during a job that would have made it safer.

The crane was carrying a new cable that will connect a new water main to the Coffes River.

Engineers and officials from the state of Illinois say they’re working to determine what went wrong.

Officials say the new bridge, which is about 1.3 miles (2 kilometers) long, will connect the town of Coffers Crossing with a new creek crossing at Coffer Dam.

Construction crews have been on the bridge for about a month and it was supposed to be finished Monday.

The bridge was due to open this week.

In a news release, the Illinois Department of Transportation said that when crews pulled up to the site of the fall, a crane suddenly fell from the sky.

The new bridge is expected to open in late April.

The fall happened in the afternoon, when the crane’s blades are being used to attach the new cable.

The cable is about 2 feet (60 centimeters) wide.

“I’ve never seen a crane fall like that,” said Robert H. Danneman, the department’s deputy commissioner for engineering.

“The cable was just hanging out there, and the cable broke off.

That was a big surprise.

We have been preparing for this, and we’ve been working on this project for a year.”

The fall caused damage to the bridge’s steel deck and two water main piers.

Daines County Emergency Management Director Jim Giesler said the bridge is still in disrepair and that the crane was in a precarious position when it fell.

He said the new cables will provide better water flow to the river, and he plans to use them to extend the creek.

The Coffees Creek Bridge is an old steel structure that connects the Coiffes River to the Mississippi River.

It’s about 1,000 feet (305 meters) long and spans about three miles (4 kilometers).

It was built in 1928.
