|Hood Canal Bridge Retrofit and East Half Replacement
Puget Sound WA
Kiewit-General A Joint Venture
The Hood Canal Bridge is the longest floating salt water bridge in the world at 6350 feet located over the Hood Canal in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. Much of the work for the project to retrofit and replace part of the bridge was performed on pontoons and required components to be floated out of a graving dock with only inches of clearance above the floor. The team used the largest floating crane on the west coast and finished the work eight days ahead of schedule while also working closely with the U.S. Navy to ensure submarine traffic was not delayed.
