Construction Photos

Photo No. 1 - View of the formwork and reinforcing steel for the center portion of the south abutment. The formwork for the I-695 roadway side of the abutment has already been set in place. Workers are in the process of setting the formwork for the back side of the abutment. The reinforcing steel rises vertically from the foundation. In the background, the completed outside portion of the new bridge and a few of the new bridge piers are visible.

During a later phase of the construction process, the steel girders that support the bridge deck will be placed on top of the piers for the center portion of the new bridge. Each of the arched piers supports two or more steel girders. On the left and right side of the photo the completed outside portions of the new bridge can be seen. The I-695 outer loop roadway and the north abutment of the new bridge are visible behind the center piers.

Photo No. 3 - This photograph was taken at night from on top of the south abutment for the new bridge. A steel girder for the new bridge is suspended from a crane as it is lowered into place onto the south abutment and median pier. Construction activities to set the steel girders in place were done at night to minimize delays to the traveling public.
