Second draw span attached to South Park Bridge
King County Road services provided an update and photo for the ongoing construction of a new South Park Bridge that has an expected completion in early 2014.
From King County's DeAnna Martin:
We achieved a major milestone the weekend of Oct. 4, as the derrick barge made its last trip to the bridge site with a 525,000 lb. drawspan suspended on its hook. The north toe span was lifted into place on Friday afternoon and bolted to the heel span in the pier over the course of 31 hours (using a total of 1064 bolts!). In the coming month, we’ll pour the concrete deck of the north span, cure it, then raise the span and do the same work on the south span.
You can view construction photos taken in September on the project website. We'll be announcing another slide show in the coming weeks for an as-yet-to-be-determined date in November.
