Last week, the remaining CLT panels were put into place. Our demolition crew is preparing to hang the utility lines to the new bridge. We are cleaning up in order to move on to the next major phase of construction: removing old and unwanted bridge material.

Last week, we installed most of the CLT roof. On Sunday, the 360-ton crane on the north side of the bridge was demobilized. We hope to see the last three panels completely installed this week. By Thursday or Friday, we project that the smaller crane on the south side of the bridge will be completely demobilized.
Both the north and south sides of the truss bridge have been set into place by crane. WWS is completing the final steps to secure the bridge in its permanent position. After we connect the two halves of the truss bridge, we will finish putting the CLT roof panels into place.
Major Construction and Installation Work Coming Up!
On Wednesday, Oct. 24, the construction team began to bring in heavy equipment to place the fabricated bridge and roof into position. The project plan and schedule have been designed to minimize disruptions to campus life and maximize project safety. Please obey all signage, stay away from the work area, and do your best to be patient and flexible during this critical phase of the bridge’s construction. Community members interested in viewing the work will have access to a viewing area, which is the service path north of the ravine.
