The concrete truck dumps the wet concrete into this machine from the side, where it is spread out in the shape and depth required. The worker on the left is inserting reinforcing bars between the two 12' lanes of concrete. The bars go into the wheel at specific times and are pushed about halfway into the concrete. Another machine then comes along behind this one and compacts and shapes the wet concrete to the final dimensions. Photo taken in July 2002.
