Demolition of the Western Bridge Begins January 4, 2021
Demolition of the bridge deck will continue to take place between the hours of 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday; we anticipate the demolition of the bridge deck will be completed by February 12, 2021. Once completed, steel removal will begin.
The deck demolition requires hoe-ramming, and residents may notice this generates noise and vibrations. We are required to monitor both—noise by noise meters, and vibrations by a seismograph near the bridge.
Upcoming steel removal in February will not generate the level of noise currently generated by the deck demolition.
Some work will be done from a Poseidon flexi-float (pictured above), in the channel. Read Channel Closure Notification announcement.
