LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- For the first time, some Ohio River bridge crews are working above the surface of the river. Max Rowland, Project Manager, explains, "Well, we've hit a milestone in the job in the fact that we have set what we call the tub."
Wayne Howlett spends most of his lunch breaks admiring the work on the bridge. He says, "I came down to see how the progress was going on the new bridges. I come down at lunch to check 'em out. I am just naturally curious about that kind of thing."
And he will also use the bridge when it opens for traffic in a few years. "I commute daily between Indiana and Kentucky," says Howlett.
On Monday, crews updated us on the progress of the Downtown Crossing. Rowland explained, the tub will be used to construct the west portion of the waterline footing of tower number five. He says, "It's actually a big box and it's 22 feet wide and 61 feet long."
And it is the first visible sign that construction of the new pier is progressing above the surface of the water.
"Everything else that we have done so far, over the last couple of months to six weeks, has been below the surface, it's putting in the foundations, the big drill shafts that go all the way down through the bottom of the river and into the bedrock," says Rowland.
The project has come a long way, however, it's still a long way from the end.
Rowland says, "We got to do that six more times; there's three towers and each tower has two of those and that's just the first one."
Crews say we will start seeing the towers coming out of the water by spring. The entire bridge is scheduled to be finished in December of 2016.
