The interior of a steel cofferdam for one of the water piers with the tremie seal concrete bottom to keep the work zone dry and stable. Crews flame-cut a portion of the steel casing that was required for the construction of the concrete caisson foundations, but is not needed for the final structure.


After the casing for the concrete caissons have been removed to the proper elevation, crews place the bottom level of galvanized reinforcement for the concrete pile caps.


This view shows the completed galvanized reinforcement steel cages for one of the water piers placed within a steel cofferdam prior to pouring the concrete pile cap. The horizontal bars will extend out of the footing and into the column of the finished pier.

This view shows the contractor's temporary construction trestle bridge used a s a construction platform on the south side of the existing Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Bridge. Concrete is being delivered and placed for the concrete pile caps at one of the water piers.

Concrete is being poured and distributed inside the cofferdam to form the concrete pile cap for one of the water piers.

This view shows a water pier with a finished concrete pile cap. The bottom of the pier column is formed out with reinforcement steel extending from the pile cap into the location of the future column concrete. The column geometry will closely resemble that of the adjacent bridge.
