A steel coffer cell for the lift pier closest to Elizabeth City is shown completely drained of water, Thursday. The coffer cell is a steel-walled box, approximately 50 feet by 70 feet, with a concrete floor 24 feet below the Pasquotank River’s surface, that holds back the river so crews can work on the new Camden Causeway Bridge.
