White Settlement Bridge Making Progress
Work on the Panther Island signature bridges continues to make daily progress proving 2017 to be a very productive construction period.
On July 17, concrete was poured for the first, full scale V-Pier for the White Settlement Bridge. The bridge contractor utilized 200 cubic yards of concrete. With crews placing the concrete on both legs of the V-Pier simultaneously, the pour took several days to complete and cure. Approximately 15,000 gallons of liquid nitrogen was used to keep the concrete cool as surface temps of the truck drums dropped below 40 degrees. Additional pours are anticipated over the next 12-months with a new pours taking place approximately every three weeks.
