Crews continue to assemble rebar for the pier columns within the cofferdam for Pier 1. In April, a 200-foot tall tower crane was installed within the cofferdam to assist with project activities.
On Pontoon W, crews continue activities to construct support columns and other structures. Two box columns enclose access stairwells for maintenance crews. The final concrete pours for these box columns was completed earlier this month.
On March 15, crews finished installing the last anchor needed for the new floating bridge. A total of 58 anchors will secure the pontoons for the new floating bridge.
Crews have resumed work activities at Pier 36 near Madison Park. This work includes the construction of work platforms and casting concrete pier columns. Pier 36 is the western-most pier for the new floating bridge.
The location of the Pier 1 cofferdam and project barges completely block the east navigation channel. This obstruction alters use of the east navigational channel and SR 520 drawspan. Read more information for boaters and SR 520 drivers.
