This past week, the week of June 28, we removed concrete at the top of Pier 3 and formed, drilled and placed dowels and poured concrete for the base portion of the Pier Cap (first photo). Also, backfill of Abutment 1 began.
In addition, piles were driven and the header beam was placed for the temporary steel bent for future steel erection in Span 3 (between Piers 2 and 3) – (second photo).
No work is anticipated on the project from Saturday 7/3 through Monday, 7/5, over the July 4 weekend.
Next week, the week of July 5, we will form and place rebar for the stem section of the Pier 3 Cap, place bearings at Pier 1, form pedestals at Abutment 1, and backfill Abutment 2.
