East Phillips Longfellow

Project overview

  • The bridge was constructed in 2007 and consisted of a main tower with cables extending to anchor blocks on the west end of the bridge and to anchorage points in the concrete deck on the east span of the bridge.
  • There are eight (8) anchorage points on the sides of the deck and one in the center of the deck. These anchorage points are numbered 1 through 9, from closest to the tower at number 1 to furthest at number 9.
  • During inspection in 2020 it was noted that anchorage points 8 and 6, on either side of the bridge, were experiencing spalling and corrosion.
  • Following testing’s and investigations of the entire bridge the city will proceed with the repair process to the lower anchorages.
