Enjoy. You think it will be open by next week?
On a serious note. Be careful. That is going to be a heck of a task out there.

Are you going to install new piers or splicing on to the top of existing piers?

Thank you, I’m on the south side of the llano one mile west of the bridge. I would take you to dinner also but I need the bridge back also if you see a 18’ blue Astro F&S call me.

The existing structure was founded on steel h piles. They either sheared off at the mud line or were plucked out. The new structure will be founded on 48” dia drilled shafts that will extend 2’ above the mean water level. From there there will 36” dia columns that support the bents. It’s a 158 working day contract. Not sure of the start date.
