BY MARCY SHORTUSE - The first cars across the new center bridge were excited. They honked, they waved, the workmen glowed. This all took place at high noon on Thursday, Aug. 1.
The center bridge is now 99 percent complete.The final step in its completion is for workers to stripe the new bridge with new, “official” paint. It will take a day to paint, several weeks to cure.
The new bridge is approximately 16 feet taller than the old center bridge, affording a spectacular view.
Work on the swing bridge, the last piece in the puzzle, will be started around the beginning of October.
