Boynton Slough Bridge Nears Completion

Granite Construction conducting concrete pours of the Boynton Slough Bridge.

Dear Stakeholder:

Construction of the Boynton Slough Bridge nears completion as the northbound deck has been poured with concrete. The Boynton Slough Bridge, located just to the east of the golf cart bridge in Rosewood Lakes, is the third largest bridge being built on Phase 2 of the project. The bridge has 103, 18-inch-wide piles made from steel and concrete and is 152 feet long.

Nesting Bird Season

Spring time also means nesting bird season on the project. Nesting bird surveys are being conducted two weeks prior to any construction operations in an area, and identifies zoned areas for nesting birds and their eggs. If an active bird nest is found, the area is protected by a 25 to 250 foot buffer depending on the species of bird. Buffers allow work to be conducted in adjacent areas without interfering with the outcome of the nest.

“Throughout construction of the SouthEast Connector project, we have been very protective of bird and wildlife habitats and will continue to do so until we’re finished,” said Garth Oksol, RTC Project Manager.

Two goose nests have been found within the project limits and inspected by the project biologist where 100-foot barriers have been created to protect the birds and allow their eggs to hatch naturally.
