South Park Bridge - Construction project updates
Construction update #27
Second drawspan attached
Oct. 17, 2013
We achieved a major milestone the weekend of Oct. 4, as the DB General derrick barge made its last trip to the bridge site with a 525,000 lb. drawspan suspended on its hook. The north toe span was lifted into place on Friday, Oct. 4 and bolted to the heel span in the pier over the course of 31 hours (using a total of 1064 bolts!). In the coming month, we'll pour the concrete deck of the north span, cure it, then raise the span and do the same work on the south span.
You can view construction photos taken in September on the project website. We'll be announcing another slide show in the coming weeks for an as-yet-to-be-determined date in November.
