The following are planned construction activities on the improvements to U.S. 17 Business and the replacement of the Perquimans River Bridge. Please note that construction activities may vary and are highly dependent on equipment and weather.
Current Project Proceedings
Pile Driving – Piles will continue to be driven from the causeway along the water utilizing a barge.
Concrete Operations – Pile caps will be formed on installed piles with operations requiring intermittent lane closures on the causeway.
Erecting Superstructure – Girders followed by deck panels, delivered both by barge and truck, will be set on established caps
Earthwork – Roadway fill will be completed for the south bridge approach on the Hertford side, and grading operations will be underway at the new intersection location on the Winfall side. Also, temporary erosion control measures are being constructed to allow new roadside drainage ditches to be cut.
Utilities – Installation of a new water line and storm drains.
