Tomorrow, Saturday, September 1 at 12 p.m. EDT, the History Channel debuts a new series called “Project Impossible” which features High Steel Structures LLC’s (AISC member fabricator) work on the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. The new episode, “Engineering America,” spotlights High Steel’s work on the $3.98 billion replacement for the former Tappan Zee Bridge that spans New York’s Hudson River.

The twin cable-stayed bridge which opened in late August 2017 was High Steel’s largest contract to date. The company provided more than 50,000 tons of the total 110,000 tons of structural steel for the project, including steel girders, cross frames, and other structural elements for the replacement.

“Project Impossible” is an original series that follows a new generation of epic engineering projects that were considered unthinkable just a few years ago. In partnership with Autodesk (AISC member), each episode investigates the ambitious projects transforming our world, and highlights the people, tools, and technological breakthroughs critical to their success.

For background on the the replacement, view our 2017 NASCC: The Steel Conference recording of “Tappan Zee Hudson River Crossing” here.
