Panther Island Bridge Updates
Henderson Street Bridge
On September 26, the contractor completed the final signature V-Pier on the Henderson bridge. This means all 20 signature v-piers are now completed.
With all of the signature V-Piers complete, you can expect to see the superstructure false work (the temporary support structure for construction) to begin spanning this bridge. The superstructure false work is currently under construction on both the north and south ends of the bridge.
Once the superstructure false work is in place, the Contractor will begin installing the steel reinforcement for the bridge’s box girder system. The box girder is the portion of the bridge that supports the roadway.
White Settlement Bridge
Work is well underway on the box girder superstructure on the White Settlement bridge. The box girder is the portion of the bridge that supports the roadway. During the months of August and September, the bridge contractor performed six major concrete pours associated with the bridge’s support system.
Major concrete pours have now been performed on three of the four bridge abutments. It is anticipated that four additional concrete pours will occur on the bridge during the month of October.
North Main Bridge
The contractor has completed the superstructure false work for the North Main bridge and is currently installing the steel reinforcement for the box girder systems over 2 of the signature v-piers. It is anticipated that the steel installation will continue into December.
