The Improve McHenry crew has been hard at work since the new year. Already, the crew has completed the first concrete pour of 2019 and has three more scheduled for the upcoming weeks.
The new McHenry Bridge’s concrete is being poured in frames, or “sections”. These frames range from 45 feet long to up to 343 feet long. Below is the anticipated concrete pour schedule for the next three pours:
• February 20, 2019
• March 5, 2019
Throughout the concrete pours, there will be minimal traffic impacts. In fact, the crew does not plan on closing any lanes during these pours, but please expect delays due to trucks entering and exiting the construction site.
