The bridge is in its final stages of construct. The lift mechanism is functional and work on the new bridge roadway approaches to connect with the old bridge are on the fast track. All lanes will open in October 2017. Demo of the temporary bridge and completion of dolphins will continue into mid 2018.

The towers are built and electrical component installation and related items is ongoing. The center span is assembled and is awaiting installation. However, project completion has been delayed by design or manufacturing problems with lift mechanism components. Expected completion date now closer to 2017.
