Cement trucks deliver their load by driving over the old bridge spanning the Mississippi River.

As one truck finishes dumping its load of cement another is backed into place to continue the process.

Sam Johnston, cement truck driver for Delta Concrete, operates controls on his truck regulating the flow of cement into the hopper.
