The Bridge Project is in the season of achieving significant milestones, and one occurred a month ago today on July 2, when the last concrete pour on the superstructure was performed on the M and S lines, the two off-ramps from the eastbound decline that lead into the city via Ocean Boulevard or down to the Port complex on Pico Avenue. If you have traveled around the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and Pico Avenue recently, you have likely seen the falsework that supports the construction of the M and S lines.
The superstructure includes all of the elements that comprise the approaches, on- and off-ramps, and main span of the bridge. While there will be future concrete pours for roadways within the Bridge Project area, this placement was the last one for the structural elements of the new bridge.
This timelapse kicked off at approximately 8 p.m. and ran until 7 a.m. the next morning, capturing crews placing concrete on the off-ramps from a concrete pump located on the future northbound 710 connector ramp.
