South Park Bridge - Construction project updates
Construction update #31
Control towers coming together
March 5, 2014
The control towers, where the bridge is operated, are taking shape more and more each day. The roof was just completed on the north tower and it won’t be long before the windows and brick work are added. Steel studs, sheet rock, plumbing, venting, and electrical systems are being installed in three levels of the tower. It's very busy inside the towers! The south tower is coming along nicely too and all the same work activities on that tower follow those of the north by just a couple weeks.
This week, crews began their next major activity - pulling miles of wire through the electrical conduits in the main piers and connecting it to the equipment and control panels. It will be crunch time as two dozen electricians work around-the-clock six days a week to hook everything up.
Check out the latest construction photos documenting work in February. And, save the date for our next photo slideshow, Thursday, March 27, 6 – 8 p.m. More details are forthcoming.
