CHEQUESSETT NECK BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
- MIG Construction has continued construction activites on the Chequessett Neck Road bridge through the month of May. Activites have focused on established construction access along the upstream side of the existing dike.
- Steel sheeting serves as a primary component for both site access and the temporary bridge abutments. These steel sheets, ranging from 25′ to 35′ long, are driven into the ground and backfilled with material to provide a stable, structurally sound work space.
- Stone armor, comprised of various sizes of large stones, is embedded along the river bottom. These stones will act as scour protection against the daily tidal flow that will pass under the new bridge.
- Note that fish passage and tidal flow is maintained duringconstruction activities.
