Audubon Bridge Constructors (ABC) is making progress on the new John Jame Audubon Bridge near New Roads and St. Francisville, Louisiana. Steve has been spending quite a bit of time there looking at shaft excavations ,test shaft installations, and test pile installations. Paul made a trip in July and I made one earlier this month to give Steve a break. It is really amazing to be part of such a large bridge project. The amount of work required to build the foundations is incredible. I have posted a couple of slide shows below from the visits Paul and I made. Links to the slide shows and albums are on the project page.
Shafts W21 and W 5 – July 2008
Shaft W12 and West High Approach Test Shaft – August 2008
