The bridge is currently off of the river and the trusses are being repaired. A very unique method was used to remove the Southern truss, is was slid to the West between sets of steel beams that were driven into the ground. The Northern truss appears to have been conventionally lifted. See the videos on You Tube:

Thanks for the update Alan!
I knew it was in the works and am happy to hear it has started.
At this time 2/12/12 the ceylon bridge is only a skeleton, as it is being rehabilitated.
