It’s nearing December 2013 and construction of the Spanish funded JR Borja Bridge continues with the major piers of the whole bridge spans now rising.

As shown, the main piers along and beside the river have taken shape. First photo shows the Carmen side.

JR Borja Bridge connects JR Borja Street and Max Suniel Street in Carmen. Jollibee Vamenta and COC-Phinma is shown in the background. Both are located along Max Suniel Street. People who are not familiar with this street are getting acquainted now.

This house along Burgos-JR Borja Street will likely be demolished soon. Pile driving is underway near the house.

An intermittent creek is located at the site (near the new concrete pier).

Could this be an optical illusion or the support at the left is actually shorter than the one at right?

The bridge is scheduled for completion in January 2015. Expect major changes in the area including more demolition of structures and widening of approaches.
