The old Vedder bridge is being moved onto dry land.
The official bridge “delaunching” process as it’s called in engineering circles, could take about a week to 10 days to complete by crews with Emil Anderson Construction.
The steel elements that remain since the asphalt, pipes and concrete were removed, are going to be recycled.
Bridge delaunching was underway last week.
They are completing the work in phases and had gotten about halfway through the work by the end of last week, on Nov. 17.
They will remove the counterweights, and move it closer to the river, before the whole structure is moved onto dry land to be dismantled.
