Its not all over until its over. Here is some finish work, that of
building forms for the final anchors that anchor the anchor to the deck.
As you can see, the steel fin that transfers stress from the cable anchor
assembly to the edge girder is only a couple of inches thick. To add mass to
the anchor assembly in order to further strengthen the cable anchor with
respect to lateral stresses, a reinforced concrete box is added to the assembly.
For cables close to the main pylons, there is less lateral stress than
the stress associates with cable movement of the longer cables. Hence the
further away from the pylon, the larger the stabilizing concrete support.
