Moody Street Overpass Work Continues

Work continues this week on the Moody Street Overpass. Last week the City of Port Moody sent us some more pictures and an update on the progress of construction.

  • The damaged girder has to be retrofitted with new steel reinforcements and concrete; concrete was cast on July 14 and is presently curing.
  • An additional steel I-beam girder has to be added to provide the necessary load carrying capacity. The steel I-beam has been fabricated and was delivered on-site. The contractor is presently installing the I-beam.
  • Once the structural components are in place and the bridge engineer confirms that the overpass can carry the design load without temporary support, the City can open the bridge for two-way traffic.
  • The single-lane counterflow system will remain in effect until the repairs are completed.
