Big step in Delaware beach bridge construction

Workers have finished pouring the north half of the bridge, which should allow extra clearance for boaters using the inlet.

One of two massive form travlerers used to pour the bridge has been taken down and removed from the north side of the construction site.  The 300-ton traveler that was specifically designed just for the Indian River Bridge project will not be used on any other construction site.  The removal of the traveler will allow higher clearance for boaters using the inlet.

On the south side, there are still four sections of concrete left to be poured.  That work is supposed to be done by late October or early November.  The bridge build is still on schedule to be completed by December.
