On the future Valley View off ramp from southbound I-5, the first layer of concrete was poured over the stem walls and soffit of the deck on the night of Tuesday, September 3. Videos below show ramp before the concrete pour (September 3) and after the pour (September 10). Workers are now removing the forms from the stem walls. The forms will be recycled and placed horizontally across the stem walls as a base over which a “mat” of rebar will be constructed.
