Houlihan Bridge

This bridge was just closed and refurbished again in August 2016. Members were replaced and straightened as necessary. Due to repeated impacts the cross frames were rebuilt and raised to provide over 17' of vertical clearance. A new bridge is being designed and it is to be completely replaced in another five years.

The phone numbers posted on the bridge are not correct. How do I contact a bridge tender to schedule an opening?
