We now have another succesful week in the bag! Early in the week we were able to successfully set the sag for all five cables. The bridge is really coming together now, and it is awesome seeing all the people who live in the area get so excited as they walk past knowing that it is almost completed. After sag setting we were not able to begin the decking for the bridge because the needed power tools are currently being used on another bridge site in the southern province of Rwanda. We did not waste any time though, and after the cables were set in place we continued to backfill the approach walls and poured concrete to create the ramp that everyone will walk up to get on to the actual bridge. Week six is sure to be another exciting week, with lots of important work still to do!
Here are some of my favorite photos from the past week. Enjoy!
