I-40 Bridge Hit Update

* Jensen Construction continues to work on the removal of steel and concrete portions of the remaining span in the river. Debris is also being removed from the river.

* Gilbert Central Corp. is mobilizing to begin construction on the bridge. ODOT and Cobb Engineering inspectors are working with Gilbert to finalize plans, ensure all certifications are in place, etc.

ODOT will continue daily updates through Friday, June 14. Because ODOT is moving into the next phase and significant progress will not be as evident, Public Affairs will begin posting weekly updates Wednesday, June 19.
