This page shows the progress of my Kessler module.  This module is 8' long and has a replica of the Kessler Bridge near Magnolia, West Virginia.  The prototype is 1052 feet long and crosses the Potomac River from Maryland into West Virginia going from East to West.  If I did it to scale, the bridge would have to be over 12' long.  I selectively compressed it to fit an 8' module.  The bridge is roughly 84" long.  I had to develop a bridge-pier-centering-device in order to keep the bridge piers on center with the pedestals.  You can see it the pictures below.
