Construction update for December

Here’s what’s planned for December!

The concrete has been poured for the road surface and the sidewalks on both the Scott Avenue Bridge and the Kittery Approach.   As you know,  the Scott Avenue Bridge serves as the entryway to the new south fixed span due to be put in place sometime in January.   Stay tuned for details on this historic event.  A must see by all!

The micropiles for Pier 3, the final pier, are still being installed and extra work shifts are necessary to complete this work.  Eighteen micropiles are being drilled through the pier into bedrock to strengthen the 1922 pier.

Archer Western and the entire project team sincerely appreciates the patience and good will of nearby residents in the face of these extended work hours. The micropile work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

And, structural steel for the Memorial Bridge spans continue to arrive by truck at the staging area.  Currently, crews are preparing south fixed span of the bridge for its transport down river to the bridge location in January.

Before you know it, the bridge will look just like the computer rendering shown on the home page with this news post.
