Progress over at the Section 32 construction site is still movin’ right along. The last update included photos up to November 1st and although much has been done since then … there are only a handful of things that have changed significantly:

  • A DEAL launching girder has been assembled to construct the one-mile bridge. Crews have almost completed the first two sections of roadway foundation.
  • A second set of overpass girders are now in place on the westbound Interstate 30 to northbound 190 ramp on the Garland shoreline.
  • Bridge support columns are now emerging from the water almost all the way across Lake Ray Hubbard. Workers are currently at the Rowlett shoreline.
  • The first eastbound 1-30 to northbound 190 girders were raised into place this week.
  • Workers have completed much of the roadway for the southbound 190 to westbound I-30 ramp … in it’s current state.
  • More partial support columns now stand near Interstate 3o for the southbound 190 to eastbound I-30 ramp.
  • Nearly all of of the support columns for the westbound I-30 to northbound 190 ramp are now completed. The rest are in final stages.
  • Major excavation has been done under old Interstate 30 to begin building the future bridge.
  • Construction of the final section of the southbound 190 to westbound I-30 ramp is now underway alongside the I-30 access road.

Now that most of the support columns are almost complete … the overpasses should start becoming visible very soon!

    Really appreciate all the work you did on the new190 bridge in section 32. I have found it difficult to get info on this section. This is great.
