Bayou Teche (Jefferson St.) Bridge Project Update
Completed work: The contractor finished most of the pile driving and pouring of concrete to create two bents, which will act as support for the bridge.
Continuing: The center pivot pier, which holds up the bridge where it swings open and closed for marine traffic to support the structure, is formed and will be poured soon. The falsework, which is created to hold up the main span members during construction, is in place and construction of the span will commence once the pivot pier is poured. The structural steel for the swing span is currently being fabricated off-site.
