Pedestrian Bridge Update:
The Contractor has completed the construction of the south abutment body and is currently working on the west and east retaining walls. The Contractor anticipates two more weeks to complete the concrete work in the south abutment/bridge plaza area.
The Contractor successfully set the four concrete beams for Spans 2 and 3 this week. The Contractor over the next few weeks will be working on pouring the concrete deck and curb along these two spans. The steel truss bridge is in final fabrication and is expected to be delivered in late July. The schedule for setting the truss bridge between the South Abutment and Pier 1 (Span 1 over the RR tracks) has been delayed to the middle of August to accommodate the schedule of the large crane Contractor.
