Main-Span Construction Beyond Half-Way Mark

In this week’s update, Duane Kenagy, Capital Programs Executive for the Port of Long Beach who oversees the building of the Bridge Project, gives a brief update on the construction of the main span, which has extended from the pier table to the 6th of 10 segments on both sides of both towers. This milestone indicates that the building of the main span is beyond the half-way point. Recently, crews installed stabilizer columns at the half-way mark at both towers to keep the main span from weather-vaning during high winds or a seismic event.


This progress also means construction has reached the navigable portion of the back channel. To coordinate large vessels entering the channel with construction activity, the bridge team conducts daily waterway traffic management calls. Find out more in the video above…
