Bridge Pour
Wednesday July 10, 2013 marked another major milestone in the building of the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit Bridge with the first segmental bridge deck pour suspended over the Willamette River at the East Tower. Kiewit Infrastructure West, the bridge contractor, began segmental deck pours at the West Tower, seen in the background) in April. In all, 78 concrete pour segments will make up the bridge deck as it begins to take shape and extend out over the water. Next summer, the bridge deck will meet in the middle of the Willamette River before the bridge's projected completion in the fall of 2015. (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Randy L. Rasmussen)
