A historic bridge project is in progress in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area. The new bridge is anticipated to be open for traffic December 2023. Total project completion is anticipated for January 2025.
Summer is heating up in South Dakota, and so is work on the new Pierre-Fort Pierre Bridge. Crews have been continuing to work on the Pierre-side abutment footing, south wing wall, and stem wall. Concrete was placed for the south wing wall, and crews have been forming the lower abutment stem wall. The stem wall is the main body of the abutment. It functions to deliver the superstructure reaction loads to the foundation and to retain much of the soil behind the abutment. Crews have also been working on constructing the drilled shaft at bent four right. Next week, crews will begin constructing the drilled shaft at bent four left.
Phase One - Underwater substructure construction and beginning roadway approach work
Phase Two - Westbound lane construction and signal work
Phase Three - Eastbound lane construction
Phase Four - Demolition of old bridge and construction of Pierre and Fort Pierre Plaza's
