Work is continuing at the Hanford Viaduct. Near Grangeville Avenue just north of Hanford, contractors have moved to the next phase of the build out by tying rebar and pouring concrete to form the bents of the viaduct. A bent is part of the substructure that provides support for the superstructure. A total of 84 bents are needed for the entire viaduct.
Crews are now pile-driving concrete production piles just north of Lacey Boulevard where the Hanford Viaduct will begin to cross over State route 198. More than 7,000 production piles will be needed for the foundation of the Hanford Viaduct.
