Widest Concrete Bridge Deck Pour in Missouri History Begins
Bridge construction sequencing saves time, money


NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The single widest bridge deck pour in Missouri state history is underway and will last for at least a week off the north bank of the Missouri River, as part of the new Christopher S. Bond Bridge. This concrete pour will be 134-feet wide, and will be placed in 70-foot sections for a total of 1,750 cubic yards.

"Missourians have entrusted MoDOT with $245 million to maximize every dollar on this project and get it built as quickly as possible" said kcICON Project Director Brian Kidwell. "Design-build project delivery enables our contractor to continue to find ways, like this single, widest deck pour, to save time and complete the project on schedule by July 2011."

"This is the widest deck pour Paseo Corridor Constructors has ever done," said kcICON Project Manager Bryan Wilkerson. "We are always looking for new, innovative ways to save time and money on this project, keeping our promise to Kansas City that this will be delivered on time and on budget."

Concrete will be pumped from trucks on the river bank, below the bridge and roadway deck. Approximately 40 crew members will work to grade and finish the concrete before the cure process begins. Once the concrete on the deck is placed, it will be covered with wet, burlap sheets until the cure process is complete.

When complete, there will be approximately 219,000 square yards of concrete paving in the 4.7-mile project.

All construction activities are weather dependent and subject to change. Updated lane closure information for the kcICON Project can be found on the project's Web site at www.kcicon.com or by calling the information hotline at 816-841-8888.
