This fall was spent finalizing the design of the bridge and budgeting. In addition to this work, the City was in the process of acquiring the property at the north abutment, which closed on December 16, 2016. We have an approved project schedule and a start date of February 2017. This will allow us to get our yard set up and put environmental protections in place in time for us to start caissons and retaining walls in the latter part of the month which hopefully, will be coincident with frost coming out of the ground.
Here are a few photos of the steel being manufactured.
