Not sure on builder for the 1963 span, unfortunately the Engineering News Record online scans cut off at 1961 as thats one possible source for the builder.

Nathan,

When you were researching this crossing, did you come across any information on the builder of the 1963 span? I have been looking and so far have not come up with anything.
