That’s what Governor Steve Beshear said to local and state politicians and media at the Eddyville Riverport Tuesday afternoon.
“The company has been working non-stop with the intent of meeting our May 27 deadline,” Beshear said.
Hall Contracting Vice President Tom Roberts said much of the steel has been fabricated at the company’s yard in Louisville and will be shipped to the Eddyville Riverport, where the steel truss will be built, and from there it and the cranes will be barged to the bridge site.
The first shipment of steel is already on the way, and should arrive at the bridge site in the next few days, said Beshear, who reiterated that they are “encouraged” about the progress so far.
Some of the steel and some of the parts to the cranes that will be used to rebuild and place the 322-foot span were on site during the press conference.
