This past week of September 27, we continued placement of overhang brackets and wooden deck formwork in exterior bays. At the interior bays (between girders), installation of galvanized steel stay-in-place deck formwork also continued as workers proceed from east to west (Southbury side towards Newtown side).
During the week of October 4, similar work will be performed as we proceed along the length of the bridge placing deck formwork including over the marine channel (Span 2). A minimum 75’ channel will remain open at all times.
The Contractor will be working Saturday this week, and for the next several weeks, to take advantage of good weather to enable the bridge deck to be poured as early in the season as possible.
