    Members of the studio went to Clifton Forge to survey the site and install concrete formwork for the foundations of the bridge.

    While Marie used the backhoe to dig holes for the formwork, the students used surveying equipment to measure the proper depth for each piece.

    While some students dug, others cleaned up the site by cutting brush and removing tree. It looks so much more open now! 

    Meanwhile, the students back in Blacksburg finished welding the bridge and the ramp. Once the rain dies down, we will be able to paint the steel!
