    The contractor has started on the east end of the bridge and is working toward the west. The bridge will have a total of 28 bents, which are concrete posts called piles that are driven into the ground with caps on top that help to support the bridge.

    Bent #26 and #27 have been completed and piles are currently being driven for bent #25.  They are also still working on installing the construction access road for the project.  The picture above shows a view of the construction of the access road.
