Bonnet Carre Spillway opening (day 1)

At the Bonnet Carre Spillway, two cranes are used to individually lift timbers from bays of the spillway and place them horizontally across the structure. A complete opening of all 7,000 timbers from the 350 bays in the spillway structure requires about 36 hours.
