Bridge Construction Resumes

June 20, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Hoback Bridge

Construction on the Hoback Junction Bridge over the Snake River is to resume next week, after the State of Wyoming and Wadsworth Brothers Construction of Draper, Utah came to an agreement about the submission of an erection plan that lays out the details for the next phases of the project.  Wyoming Department of Transportation Engineer John Eddins says that plan was submitted and discussed last week enabling the project to move forward now.  Eddins says the contractor this week is putting together a second crane to be able to start erecting the columns next week.  Once those columns are erected, Eddins says they will be surveyed to determine if the column can be adjusted in place to be level, or will it have to be taken back down and adjusted in a fabrication shop.  Eddins says under the plan discussed last week, the bridge would tentatively be completed and opened to traffic by mid-December.  Between now and then, Eddins says there should be minimal disruption of traffic passing through the construction area. He says traffic could be flagged briefly as the cranes are being put into place, but if there is anything more extensive than that, the highway department will forewarn motorists through the media. Still, Eddins says setting the columns into place in the near future should not pose any cause for disruption to traffic.  The bridge originally had been slated for completion last October, but the dispute with the contractor over details of the project stalled activity until now.
