Mobilization has begun for the upcoming foundation work on the I-210 Bridge. As you can see from these images taken today, a large drill rig and crane have been trucked in and are being assembled on the south side of the eastbound I-210 Freeway. This is the location of the first of three 110 foot deep, 11 foot in diameter foundations to be drilled over the next four weeks. The other two are located in the center median of the freeway.
Each foundation will take approximately six days to drill and cast. We anticipate drilling the first foundation next week, followed by the installation of the reinforcing steel cage, concrete placement and testing the following week. This schedule is dependent on receiving final approval from Caltrans this week, so stay tuned.
During these activities, partial and full eastbound lane closures are planned (full closures occur late at night to minimize traffic delays). Sign up to receive construction alerts to your e-mail or cell phone here.
