Magnolia Bridge Replacement Project Update

By  | 

Submitted by Rep. Clif Richardson's Office

Crews are currently hauling embankment and driving piles, which act as a support for the bridge. They are also forming and pouring caps to be placed on top of the piles to form bents. These bents will allow crews to place girders, which are currently being casted. To date crews have driven 82 of 180 piles and poured 11 of 30 caps.

    This company is the same who did the Comite River bridges for the Central Throughway. Talking with DPW field engineers these guys finished early on those as well. They seem to be moving right along now. Hopefully they will be ahead of schedule.

    This bridge project might actually finished before the overlay project on Greewell Springs Road.
