Footings + Abutment Walls Completed

Foundation work has been completed and the footings and abutments walls are installed!  Due to poor soil conditions and to make sure we stayed out of the stream zone, we pulled the foundation back away from the steam on both sides.  Additionally, the footings are sitting on large gravel bed, that will limit any settling in the future when the water table rises or the river floods. 

We are completing some last minute prepping details and finish grading, but the bridge should be hoisted into place by the end of this week, the moment we have all been waiting for.  Many thanks to our foundation contractor, C&T Paving and a big shout out to AMEC for doing the third-party testing and verification of our concrete.
