Computing Bridge Beam Deflections - Adjust Linestring Elevation

This comes up a lot and the Adjust Linestring Command does a great job of re-computing linestring elevations across a bridge beam to account for center point deflections. Simply use the Delta mode and select Start to Location 1 for the front 50% of the beam and then Location 2 to End for the second half of the beam and you will get a set of updated / prorated elevations to work with.
