This view is a close up of the formwork installed for the concrete pier caps. The formwork is temporarily anchored to the pier and must support the concrete while it's still in its fluid form. After the concrete for the pier cap hardens and develops sufficient strength, the forms and anchors are removed.
This view is of the end of a completed pier showing the pointed edges of the column. The similarity to the existing bridge pier columns geometry and size can be seen in the background.

This view is looking towards the mainland on the westernly end of the bridge. It was taken from the top of Pier 11 which is two spans away from the navigation channel and the center of the bridge. It shows the on-going pier construction.

This view is of the completed pier columns and pier caps near the easterly end of the bridge (taken from the top of Pier 11). The similarity to the existing bridge pier column geometry and size can be seen on the left.
