Sloan Bridge is constructing nine bridges on the Wilmington By-Pass. The package includes 3 bridges over CSX RR, 3 bridges over new or existing roadways, and 3 bridges over Cartwheel Branch that feeds into the Cape Fear River. Some of the challenges on this project including: the installation of some of the deepest drilled shafts ever constructed for NCDOT at 154 ft deep; Bridge 4 over CSX RR which required passing off the girder from one crane to a 2nd crane in mid-air; and the erection of structural steel girders on Bridge 1 & 2 over the CSX RR. Our team achieved a record of 945 days worked towards achieving Goal Zero with no injuries. This section of the by-pass is scheduled to open November 2017.
