PHOTOS: Wing Walls Installed At Sylvester Road Bridge Construction
Courtesy Brett Fish comes some new photos of Sylvester Bridge Construction, specifically on the installation of wing walls on Friday, Dec. 9th (click images to see larger version):
If you’re like us and you don’t know a Wing Wall from former Burien Mayor Wing Woo, here’s some info from Wikipedia:
In a bridge, the wing walls are adjacent to the abutments and act as retaining walls.
They are generally constructed of the same material as those of abutments.
The wing walls can either be attached to the abutment or be independent of it.
