For 49 days over the next five months girders will be transported to the construction site of the new Stingray Creek Bridge between Laurieton and North Haven.
The massive concrete structures are being transported, one at a time, on the highway, left overnight at the corner of Bold Street and Ocean Drive then driven to the site between 5am and 7am the following day.
“This section of Ocean Drive will be closed in both directions for five minute intervals while the truck reverses the girders to the site,” a spokesman for Port Macquarie-Hastings Council said on Friday.
“There should not be any significant delays for motorists as the full lane closures will only be around five minutes then alternate lanes will be opened to relieve traffic volumes.”
The delivery of the girders will take place on various days until October 28.
Construction of the bridge is on schedule and due for completion by the end of the year.
The $26 million bridge will be 190m long and improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety.
The council has time lapse cameras capturing the construction of the bridge:
