The first beam over the navigation channel is being lifted into place. There will be 55 feet of vertical clearance measured from the water level to the bottom of the beams in the navigation channel. The beams for this span of the bridge are lifted by two cranes, one on the easterly construction platform and one on the westerly platform.
This photo is taken from the existing bridge and depicts the second beam for the navigation channel as it approaches its touchdown point on the pier caps. Note the steel reinforcement extending out from the top of the beam to create a positive connection to the future concrete deck. Safety cables and posts on top of the beam can also be seen during the lifting operations. These items are anchored into the beams on the ground to allow safe access to the elevated beams immediately after they are set.

A subsurface gravel wetland located at the intersection of Route 70 and Herbertsville Road nears completion. This wetland is designed to improve the health of the Barnegat Bay by reducing the amount of total suspended solids and nitrogen being deposited into the Bay. Two wetlands were constructed along Route 70 to meet the stormwater management requirements for the Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Bridges Project.
