At this point of the levee, you could see a circular encasement (left) where the steel encasement will be placed.

You could see the steel encasement in the following photos ready for installation. Once placed inside the bored hole, concrete will be poured into it.

Meanwhile, you can see that initial site clearing has started at Carmen side. The first houses to be demolished are the ones near the river.

This project is targeted to be completed in January 2015 so we may see a lot of bored piles in the next months. The bridge project also includes its approaches on both sides so a lot of demolition will have to be made.
