Admiral Clarey Bridge
(aka Ford Island Bridge)

Project Description

The Navy’s desire to bridge the nearly 1.5 kilometer channel between the Pearl Harbor shore and Ford Island was met by a design based on a traditional span bridge with intermediate support foundations and a movable floating section that when pulled under the main structure would create an opening through which ships could navigate. The design’s underwater foundations, piles driven into the seabed, and above water construction presented an excellent opportunity to which Hawaiian Dredging could bring its waterfront and foundations expertise and resources that were already well-rooted in Pearl Harbor’s history having dredged the naval complex’s main channel some over 117 years earlier.
