Work continues at Upper Bodines Road as the road is prepared for paving and guide rail is placed. All grading around the bridge has been completed with rip rap placed at both abutments and all four wingwalls.
It’s been a busy week and a half at the project site. The contractor, Rylind Construction, placed shale fill on both advance approaches beyond the bridge MSE wall limits. This fill is subbase for the future approach roadway. They placed geogrid and stone backfill behind the MSE walls, removed the Jersey Barrier from the stream, placed rip-rap at all 4 corners of the bridge and restored the stream channel under the bridge.
