Contractors Begin Adding Rebar Cages to Yorktown Mud Bridge

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – City contractors began repairs to the Yorktown Mud Bridge on January 23. They are now on their 41st working day of what is expected to be a 70-working-day project.

Over the last week, contractors completed the restoration of nine of eleven bridge bent caps identified for repair. Now that the work on the bent caps is complete, the contractors are preparing the bridge columns for specialized jackets. The first step in that process is the installation of rebar cages.

Cage installation will continue through the end of this week.
