Oct. 26 - Digging out underneath the west side of the NE 124th bridge to widen the freeway. We've already dug out the east side and built a retaining wall.
Oct. 26 - The west abutment for the NE 128th bridge, as seen from across the freeway. Crews have placed steel for retaining walls on the sides of the abutment.
Oct. 20 - Workers scale the framework for the west abutment of the NE 128th bridge. Just 10 days ago we only had the foundation framework in place.
Oct. 20 - We poured concrete for two of the fifteen columns that will support the additional width of the I-405 bridges over NE 132nd Street. Compare Oct. 7 photo.
Oct. 20 - The new retaining wall on the right makes room to widen the freeway. Vehicles will travel through this area when entering northbound I-405 from eastbound NE 124th Street (that's the NE 124th bridge overhead). The wall was much shorter a couple months ago.
Oct. 20 - Workers form the footing for a short wall perpendicular to the new NE 128th bridge abutment on the east side of the freeway.
Oct. 17 - Backfilling behind the east abutment for the new NE 128th bridge.
Oct. 10 - Crews are building the foundation for one of the supports for the new NE 128th Street bridge on the west side of I-405. Two and a half weeks ago, we were excavating the area.
Oct. 10 - We're almost finished building this rock and wire cage wall along the east side of I-405. See last month's photo of this wall's construction.
Oct. 7 - Steel rebar cages just east of I-405 at NE 132nd. Crews will place forms and pour concrete around these cages to form columns. There will be 15 columns to support additional width of the I-405 bridges over NE 132nd. The foundations of these supports go up to 60 feet deep. Crews have been closing NE 132nd under the freeway at night to perform the excavation work.
