And, we had to make sure that what we were doing at the site matched up exactly with what we were doing at the offsite location.Armed with information and lessons learned from dry runs, the project team executed the momentous move last fall. The carefully planned operation was performed by self-propelled modular transporters during six overnight shutdown periods, Aug. 26 to Sept. 4 and Sept. 8 to 9. Crews used three trains, with a total of 51 axle lines and six Mega Jack 300 cradle systems. Transporters had to cross two runways that were closed to air traffic and underneath the active Skylink Trainwith a clearance of just 6 inchesto deliver each module to Terminal C.
