Construction Begins On Last Pier of Bridge

Work on the Snake River Pathway Bridge is continuing into January with progress continuing on schedule for a 2014 completion. Cannon Builders Inc. completed construction of the concrete shaft of Pier #3 on the eastern end of the bridge this week, and has started work on the final in-river pier on the west side of the channel. Pier #2 had previously been completed.  Jackson/Teton County Pathways Coordinator Brian Schilling explains that the several month-long process of constructing each of the in-river piers involves driving sixteen sheet piles approximately 30 feet below the river bed to form a coffer dam that provides a below-ground working area for the pier construction. Schilling says after the coffer dam is excavated, nine steel H-piles are driven to a depth of 80’ below the bottom of the coffer dam and a concrete seal cap is poured at the bottom. Each concrete pour requires several days of heated curing. As soon as the concrete shaft is cured, he says the formwork is removed, the coffer dam is backfilled, the sheet piles are removed, and work begins on the next pier. Schilling says the target for completion of the bridge is sometime in the middle of next summer.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
