Paoli Bridge Update


The pier out in the river was poured yesterday and the crew is working to remove the forms today.  Once that is complete they will continue with removal of the equipment and materials out in the river.

Please note that this Thursday, the contractor will begin to set beams on the new west abutment and pier.  This operation will again require large trucks coming and going that will be delivering these beams.  The plan is to have them stage down on Sun Valley Parkway, only bringing in one truck at a time as necessary.   We will try to minimize disruption to the businesses, but please be cautious and patient with this operation Thursday.  Hopefully most of the beams will be set by noon, but may take longer.

Next week the contractor will move into the east abutment and begin construction on that.  There will be one more day of pile driving, and as we get closer to that, I will let you all know.

As always, if there are any further questions, please let me know.
