Construction of the Fort Hamer Bridge is approximately 81% complete and extends over 1850 feet from the edge of the north side of the Manatee River. This length includes the beams. Crews recently completed the construction of pier 3 and are currently pouring the foundation for pier 4.
There are only 4 more spans that remain to be poured. Once these are complete, crews will be able to make the drive from one end of the bridge to the other. This is anticipated to take place in July. Crews anticipate working on the street lighting on the south end of the bridge over the next several weeks. Completion of all three projects is anticipated to take place in late summer.
Below are the activities scheduled to take place over the next several weeks on Fort Hamer Bridge.
