Summary, etc.: Throughout history, bridges have been disassembled, pushed, and airlifted to new locations, but sometimes certain bridges are just too big to move. Or are they? In this episode from Mega Movers, follow a team of experts who contend that one of the world's longest and most famous suspension bridges, San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, could be relocated. Explore the intricate planning and machinery that would be needed to pull off this record-breaking move. Then, journey across the country to Rhode Island, where the team comes up against a massive challenge when they take on the job of hauling the world's widest network-arched bridge 15 miles upriver and giving it a new home. Records were made to be broken and, apparently, bridges were made to be moved.
