We are now using the new bridge. Workers are already preparing the old bridge for its upcoming move. Thank you to everyone who helped celebrate the old bridge in video, photos and events over the past decades, especially this past week.

The new bridge is roughly 75% done. The north walkway and decorative lights/artwork are still coming, and in fact, can’t be added until the old bridge is moved away. Crews are removing the concrete deck from the old bridge to make it lighter. Cranes will then hoist it onto a trailer parked on the new bridge to depart. Construction will continue to build out the remaining 25% of the new bridge, which will officially be done in 2019.
