D Construction completed framing the east half of the west bridge over the Fox River and is about to begin installing the bridge deck reinforcement. The Contractor has begun framing the west half of the bridge now that the pier improvements and steel beam installation is finished. The Contractor has also started storm sewer work associated with the bridge improvements. The next large task at hand is pouring the concrete bridge deck. D Construction plans to pour the east half first, and then follow up a week later to pour the west half.
