Byberry Road Bridge

How long did the original construction of this bridge take?

Asking because the 8 months and millions wasted on repairing it are still pissing me off and I want to verbally bash the union working on it for not being able to complete the repairs, with today's current technology, in a respectable amount of time.

I would guarantee the original builders took all of 1-2 weeks to complete the entire thing. But I am having a hard time identifying this information
