Construction Update

July 14, 2016

The past week’s construction activities included placing reinforcing steel and concrete for the South pier columns, attaching bracing to the steel girders for the span between the North abutment and North pier (See Photo), continued work on the last section of retaining wall adjacent to the South abutment, and the start of backfilling around the South abutment. Next week’s work is anticipated to include the delivery of more steel girders, setting reinforcing and placing concrete for the South pier cap, removal of the north extension of the temporary work platform, and miscellaneous site work including backfilling behind the South abutment.
