Just in from the King County Department of Transportation – an update on the new South Park Bridge:
The control towers, where the bridge will be operated, are taking shape more and more each day. The roof was just completed on the north tower and it won’t be long before the windows and brick work are added. Steel studs, sheet rock, plumbing, venting, and electrical systems are being installed in three levels of the tower. It’s very busy inside the towers! The south tower is coming along nicely, too. All the same work activities on that tower follow those of the north buy just a couple weeks.
North control tower comes together
This week, crews began their next major activity – pulling miles of wire through the electrical conduits in the main piers and connecting it to the equipment and control panels. It will be crunch time as two dozen electricians work around-the-clock six days a week to hook everything up.
Check out the latest construction photos documenting work in February. And, save the date for our next photo slideshow, Thursday, March 27, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. More details are forthcoming.
We asked a followup question – no projected opening date has been set, yet.
