With the beams now set, backfill will be placed behind the abutments and then settlement plates will be placed on the backfill to monitor the settlement. Together, these components will directly support the new concrete bridge deck that will soon be poured.
The road will be closed and impassible until early August as they remove and reconstruct the bridge. The trail and bridge will also be closed until early August. Trail users are advised to seek alternate routes around the closed work area.
