Work is well underway on the main pylon foundation for the Christopher S. Bond Bridge on the kcICON project in Kansas City. By Labor Day, 4 of the 8 shafts (with 10.5-foot diameter rock sockets) will be completed. Construction of the shafts is progressing smoothly. The Pylon shafts may be completed as early as the end of September. Work on the land shafts will start sometime after Labor Day.

Update: MoDOT has set up a webcam on the exisiting bridge looking down on the pylon construction. Check it out here.
