The contractor working on the Rochambeau Bridge replacement along I-84 in Newtown has constructed a temporary bent for future steel erection in Span 2, which is over the navigation channel on Lake Zoar. The bent will be in place until late September. It will be well-lit and delineated so boaters can see it well in advance. A 75-foot channel will be maintained between the bent and Pier 2. Last week crews completed removal of the existing concrete barrier wall and concrete placement for Pier 3 pier cap. They also poured concrete at abutment 2. This week crews have been working on drainage and preparing to install bearings.
