At the Coyote Creek Bridge in La Mirada, workers have been drilling and driving piles into the ground to support the future bridge abutment wall. Local businesses should expect vibration and loud pounding during the day for several weeks. The piles are long, steel, hollow, cylindrical pipes that are driven deep into the ground.  Construction of the footings and the rebar frames for the abutment wall is underway. The rebar frames will be covered with forms to encase the walls in concrete. Photos below from October 30 and November 13:
