Final Red Bridge Raise Scheduled for Friday, January 27th (Weather Permitting)
As of January 25th, the Red Bridge has been raised about 4 feet. The remaining and final 6 inches of raising is scheduled for this Friday, January 27th (weather permitting). Approximately 30 hydraulic jacks in total, each with the lifting capacity of approximately 55 tons (note: a typical car jack has a lifting capacity of 1.5 to 3 tons), are used to raise the bridge along with the use of cranes.
Construction is continuing to progress, despite the cold weather. The contractor has completed pile driving on the west pier and has poured concrete for the west pier footing. They are now working on the pier stem wall forming and then will transition to pile driving and footing construction on the center pier. Concurrently, the east abutment continues to have reinforcing steel and formwork placed for the abutment pedestal. See attached progress photos HERE.
Installation of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing equipment is ongoing with the majority of the work in the basement, first floor, and shafts that run from the basement to the attics.
Demolition of existing walls and ceilings has uncovered deteriorated conditions such as pipes, which will be replaced while they are accessible.
